Sign & Symptoms of Hypothyroidism

Weight gain or increased difficulty losing weight
Coarse, dry hair
Dry, rough pale skin
Hair loss
Cold intolerance (can't tolerate the cold like those around you)
Muscle cramps and frequent muscle aches
Memory loss
Abnormal menstrual cycles

Decreased libido

I highlighted the signs & symptoms I have. At first, I barely notice the sign such as being forgetful and when I did, I attribute them to getting older. Other signs are: My thought processes become slow, there are days I feel depressed with no specific reason, Abnormal menstrual cycles (so abnormal that I need to drink medicine to have my period)

Last year, I consulted a endocrinologist and I was diagnosed and treated for hypothyroidism. But I stopped this year (for some personal reason) but the good news is, Next year I'm going to start again my treatment and hoping to get better.
