You might not notice signs or symptoms of Hashimoto's disease at first, or you may notice a swelling at the front of your throat (goiter). Hashimoto's disease typically progresses slowly over years and causes chronic thyroid damage, leading to a drop in thyroid hormone levels in your blood. The signs and symptoms are mainly those of an underactive thyroid gland (hypothyroidism). Signs and symptoms of hypothyroidism include: Fatigue and sluggishness Increased sensitivity to cold Constipation Pale, dry skin A puffy face Hoarse voice Unexplained weight gain — occurring infrequently and rarely exceeding 10 to 20 pounds, most of which is fluid Muscle aches, tenderness and stiffness, especially in your shoulders and hips Pain and stiffness in your joints and swelling in your knees or the small joints in your hands and feet Muscle weakness, especially in your lower extremities Excessive or prolonged menstrual bleeding (menorrhagia) Depression
