In brief: Advanced hypothyroid

Myxedema is just severe, prolonged and advanced hypothyroidism, so the symptoms are like hypothyroidism -- everything slows down.
When severe, which is very uncommon today, the warning signs of dangerous myxedema include an intolerance to cold, low blood pressure, shortness of breath, lethargy and seizures this is easy to prevent by having the doctor give you brand name thyroid replacement.
