They could be but you need a blood test to verify this. Please speak to your doctor about getting that.
Thyroid dysfunction can relate to the symptoms you describe. When thyroid hormone levels are too low you may experience fatigue, weight gain, cold intolerance, constipation, dry skin and hair loss. An overworking thyroid may cause rapid heart rate , palpitations, sweating, mood swings and anxiety, puffy eyes, loose bowel movements and other symtoms. Menstrual irregularites may occur with both conditions. Speak with your doctor to arrange for a thyroid panel on your blood tests to address your concerns.
