    The thyroid gland is located on the front part of the neck below the thyroid cartilage (Adam’s apple). The gland produces thyroid hormones, which regulate body metabolism. Thyroid hormones are important in regulating body energy, the body’s use of other hormones and vitamins, and the growth and maturation of body tissues.
    there is many different types of problems that can happen to a thyroid such as such as hypothyroism, hyperthyroidism, thyroid cancer, thyroid nodules, and thyroid problems during pregnancy.
    You don’t need to have all of these symptoms in order to have a thyroid problem, but here are some of the most common signs that you might have a thyroid condition.
    Muscle and Joint Pains, Carpal/Tendonitis Problems.
    Aches and pains in muscles and joints, and a tendency to develop carpal tunnel in the arms/hands, and tarsal tunnel in the legs, can all be symptoms of undiagnosed thyroid problems, most typically hypothyroidism.
    Neck Discomfort/Enlargement.
    feeling of swelling in the neck, discomfort with turtlenecks or neckties, a hoarse voice, or a visibly enlarged thyroid can all be symptoms of thyroid disease. To find out if the thyroid is enlarged, you take a simple test at home. Hold a mirror so that you can see the area of your neck just below the Adam’s apple and right above the collarbone. Tip your head back, while keeping this view of your neck and thyroid area in your mirror. Take a drink of water and swallow. As you swallow, look at your neck. Watch carefully for any bulges, enlargement, protrusions, or unusual appearances in this area when you swallow, and if you see anything unusual, see your doctor right away.
    Hair / Skin Changes. Hair and skin are particularly vulnerable to thyroid conditions. With hypothyroidism, hair frequently becomes coarse and dry, breaking, brittle, and falls out easily. Skin can become coarse, thick, dry, scaly. In hypothyroidism, there is often an unusual loss of hair in the outer edge of the eyebrow. With hyperthyroidism, severe hair loss can also occur, and skin can become fragile and thin.
    Bowel Problems.
    Severe or long-term constipation is frequently associated with hypothyroidism, while diarrhea or irritable bowel syndrome is associated with hyperthyroidism.
    Menstrual Irregularities and Fertility Problems.
    Heavier, more frequent, more painful periods are frequently associated with hypothyroidism, and shorter, lighter, or infrequent menstruation can be associated with hyperthyroidism. Infertility can also be associated with undiagnosed thyroid conditions.
    Family History.
    A family history of thyroid problems puts you at higher risk of having a thyroid condition yourself. But you may not always be aware of thyroid problems in your family, as among older people, they are often referred to as "gland trouble" or "goiter." So pay attention to any discussions of glandular conditions or goiter or weight gain due to "glandular trouble" as these may be referring to thyroid conditions.
    Feeling exhausted when you wake up, feeling as if 8 or 10 hours of sleep a night is insufficient, or being unable to function a full day without a nap can all be signs of both hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism. (With hyperthyroidism, you may have nighttime insomnia that leaves you exhausted during the day.
    Depression and Anxiety.
    Depression or anxiety — including sudden onset of panic disorder — can be symptoms of thyroid disease. Hypothyroidism is most typically associated with depression, while hyperthyroidism is more commonly associated with anxiety or panic attacks. Depression that does not respond to anti-depressants may also be a sign of an undiagnosed thyroid disorder.
    Weight Changes.
    You may be gaining weight but eating and working out the same as always, or you’re losing weight, and eating the same amount of food as usual — or even eating more than normal. Weight changes — up or down — can be signs of both hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism.
    Difficulty Losing Weight.
    You may be on a low-fat, low-calorie diet with rigorous exercise program, but are failing to lose any weight, or even gaining. Or you may have joined a diet program, or support group like Weight Watchers, and you’re following it to the letter, and are the only one who isn’t losing any weight. Difficulty losing weight can be a sign of hypothyroidism.
