I've been told that I have hypothyroidism; how come I don't hardly any symptoms indicating that I do?

In brief: It depends on levels

Many people with mild hypothyroidism don't feel any different.
Occasionally, even people with severe hypo feel normal. Severe hypo can lead to heart disease so it should be corrected even if the person feels well. In mild cases, this is questionable.
