Hypothyroidism can present with Fatigue ,Weakness , Weight gain or increased difficulty losing weight, Coarse, dry hair ,Dry, rough pale skin, Hair loss , Constipation, Depression, Irritability, Memory loss ,Decreased libido.

But not all cases have all the symptoms. If it is treated adequately, you can avoid them.

After the treatment check you T3, T4 and TSH.
