Symptoms of Hashimoto’s Disease (Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis)

Fatigue and Depression

Fatigue is the feeling of tiredness, where you suddenly lack some energy to engage in any work. The feeling of fatigue makes it difficult for one to perform any activity. There are several causes of fatigue, and all one may be to sleep. However, in the case of Hashimoto disease, the feeling of fatigue results from the decrease in thyroid hormone production; it is a sign that the thyroid levels are not regulated properly. Fatigue is generally a symptom of any form of hypothyroidism.

Depression is a medical condition that causes one to be in a sad mood and not function well. It also makes it hard for one to think, eat, and sleep. You are thinking, how is depression a symptom of Hashimoto disease? Although there are different diseases, generally speaking, any form of thyroid disease can affect one’s mood, causing anxiety or depression. The more severe the condition is, the more damage it does to your mood. Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis is no exception; when the thyroid gland does not make enough thyroid hormone, it can cause depression.
