In brief: Varies

Palpitations, tremors, muscle weakness, heat intolerence, weight loss, anxiety - or some people have few if any symptoms (so called "apathetic" hyperthyroidism).

No, those are some symptoms of an OVERactive thryoid, called HYPERthyroidism. UNDERactive thyroid can cause fatigue, weight gain, constipation, dry skin.
