19 Signs Your Thyroid Isn’t Working

You’re Feeling Down

This is a symptom of hypothyroidism, the production of too little thyroid hormone causes levels of “feel good” serotonin in the brain to drop down.

You Feel Jittery And Anxious

This is associated to hyperthyroidism- there’s too much TH. If you feel unrelaxed your thyroid is hyper.

Your Appetite Is Bad

Too much TH makes you feel hungry all the time. There is no weight gain thanks to the hyper thyroid. You may notice smell and taste difference if the thyroid is underworking.

Your Brain Feels Fuzzy

When your thyroid is out of whack the cognitive functioning can take a hit. You will experience difficulty concentrating due to too much TH and cause forgetfulness and general brain fog when it’s too low.  “When we treat patients for hypothyroidism, they are often surprised at how fast their brain fog goes away and how much sharper they feel,” Dr. Miller says. “Many women think it’s just something that comes along with menopause when it really is a sign of a thyroid problem.”
