Hi! Thank you for your question. Your description of your symptoms (dysguesia, weight gain, cold intolerance, period changes), together with your family history of thyroid disease, point to a probable thyroid problem. Please see a doctor so that he/she can examine you and run the tests as soon as possible. I hope you feel better soon!
