Not all fatigue or tiredness is due to thyroid malfunction, so how do you tell the difference?
Thyroid-related fatigue begins to appear when you cannot sustain energy long enough, especially when compared to a past level of fitness or ability. If your thyroid foundation is weak, sustaining energy output is difficult. You will notice you just don’t seem to have the energy to do the things you used to be able to do.
- Feeling like you don’t have the energy to exercise, and typically not exercising on a consistent basis.
- A heavy or tired head, especially in the afternoon, as your head is a very sensitive indicator of thyroid hormone status.
- Falling asleep as soon as you sit down and don’t have to do anything.
If you wake up energized, maintain decent energy throughout the day, are able to maintain mental alertness/sharpness, have energy as needed to meet demands, and your muscles feel fit, you do not have thyroid-related fatigue. However, the more you do not feel like this, the greater chance there is a thyroid-related problem.
