Hyperthyroidism (overactive thyroid) is a condition in which your thyroid gland produces too much of the hormone thyroxine, while hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid) is a condition in which your thyroid gland doesn't produce enough of certain important hormones. There are some similar symptoms:
  • Fatigue.
  • Muscle Weakness.
  • Changes in menstrual patterns.
But there are several opposite symptoms: Hyperthyroidism brings sudden weight loss and makes you more sensitive to heat, while hypothyroidism brings weight gain and makes you more sensitive to cold. Key word: hypothyroidism vs hyperthyroidism
