You can read the full article here http://thyroid.about.com/cs/basics_starthere/a/10signs.htm.

There are two types of thyroid issues which are hyperthyroidism (overactive thyroid) and hypothyroidism (underactive). The Mayo Clinic also provides a wide range of information on both thyroid issues and symptoms that can be found here http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/SEARCH/Search.

Do you think you may have thyroid issues? What are your concerns?
