I found out few days ago that I have hypothyroidism disease after going to emergency room last week for heart palpitations (rapid heart beating) and swollen feet. The disease in short is: Inadequate levels of thyroid hormone in the body. It caused many symptoms that I’ve long thought to be normal such as brain fog, increased sensitivity to heat and cold (very cold hands/feet even during hot day), dry puffy skin (like nintendo’s kirby), fatigue, shortness of breath, anxiety, paleness, weak bowel movements, etc and most importantly lack of focus which is often misdiagnosed as ADD. This explains why I’m unable to work on projects for longer than few hours. Check wikipedia page for a longer list of signs and symptoms

Either changing body hormones or 1+ year of long sitting playing World of Warcraft triggered some of the serious symptoms. If latter is in fact what affected me, I’m glad it happened or otherwise I’ll never find out about this disease. For more info on this disease:


I’m taking medicines right now but Thyroid medicine will take 4-6 weeks to kick in. Any of you experiencing some form of Thyroid disease too?
