Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis : Signs And Symptoms

Hashimoto's Thyroiditis: Symptoms, Causes, and Treatments

Early on, symptoms may not be noticed. Hashimoto’s disease typically progresses slowly over years and causes chronic thyroid damage, leading to a drop in thyroid hormone levels in the blood. Over time, the thyroid gland may enlarge, forming a painless goiter. The signs and symptoms of hypothyroidism usually include:

  • Unexplained weight gain
  • Swelling or a puffy face
  • Fatigue
  • Sluggishness
  • Constipation
  • Pale, dry skin
  • Increased sensitivity to cold
  • Muscle aches, cramping or joint pain
  • Hoarseness

*** In some patients, only low thyroid hormone levels are detected without presenting clinical symptoms (known as subclinical hypothyroidism).
