Did you know that people with thyroid disorders often have emotional/mental health and physical symptoms? Emotional problems can include Anxiety, Depression, mood swings, difficulty concentrating and memory issues. Physical symptoms such as hair loss, thyroid eye disease, weight gain or loss, are also common and can affect the way you feel. These emotional and physical symptoms can make day to day functioning quite challenging. However, there is hope. Treatment is possible and can be very effective. You just have to find the treatment modality that works for you.
While non-drug treatments such as relaxation or short-term psychotherapy can be helpful, they don’t always give you the relief needed to gain your life back.
