Low thyroid levels cause fatigue, weight gain, constipation and irregular menses. Too much thyroid hormone cause weight loss and palpitations. Thyroid nodules are cancer in about 5% of the time.

I have all the symptoms of thyroid problems but my tests come back normal. Saw my gynecologist and she found cysts? Could that be why I feel sluggish?
Definitely!: Most doctors rely on TSH alone to assess thyroid. If you have cysts/nodules...you need a full work-up including ultrasound (if not already done), TSH, free T4, free T3, (liothyronine) Reverse T3, (liothyronine) Thyroglobulin and Thyroid Peroxidase Antibodies, SHBG (sex hormone binding globulin), ferritin levels, selenium, and iodine levels. You may have a hidden autoimmune disorder known as Hashimoto's Thyroiditis.See 2 more doctor answers
