When the thyroid is incapable of producing sufficient quantities of the thyroid hormone, the person’s metabolism may slow down, causing hypothyroidism. This condition can cause symptoms similar to fibromyalgia, including dry skin, weight gain or loss, psychological distress, hair loss, environmental sensitivity, and memory loss, among others.
