Hypothyroidism occurs when there is an abnormally low amount of activity in the thyroid gland, a small gland in the front of a patient’s neck. A sluggish thyroid gland may cause a number of symptoms, including: muscle weakness, mental and physical fatigue, fluid retention, weight gain, hearing and vision difficulties, depression, headaches and dizziness in the mornings, and many other symptoms. Any combination of symptoms should be taken seriously. Patients should schedule an appointment with their primary care provider, or endocrinologist, as soon as possible.
