Yeap, those are symptoms of classic hypothyroidism. The reflex is called, "hung up reflex" ... people with hypothyroidism have a slow relaxtion phase of the deep tendon reflexes. Also the perception of coldness, weakness is common. These are all from decrease metabolism. You may or may not notice weight gain, apathy, swelling of the legs .... pretibial edema, loss of the outer third of the eyebrow, orbital swelling.

Time to get aboard the synthroid train.
