Do you have problem adjusting to cold temperature? Do you feel you are always tired? Dry skin? Fragile nails? Loss of lateral brows? Hair loss? Constipation? Sleep problem? Voice change?
Nipple discharge? Vision change? Headaches? Loss of libido?

Do you have any other symptoms associated with your problem?
Are you aware of anything which might have brought this on?
