What symptoms of hypothyroidism appear in subclinical hypothyroidism ?

What symptoms of hypothyroidism appear in subclinical hypothyroidism ?

Why are not all doctors familiar with subclinical hypothyroidism... When you have all the symptoms but tests are in normal range. Its so common!

Not real: Symptoms of low thyroid are extremely common in the population. Most people with these symptoms have no thyroid problem. When you say that normal is not normal, it means that there are no normal people in the world.
