Either having Hyperthyroidism or Hyperthyroidism and blood test shows normal means the thyroid hormone is low and sensitive. In order to stop and help the symptoms you can consult with your encodcrinologist about using progesterone cream. Progesterone is huge factor for thyroid.

Hi Anonymous,
Thank you for your question and welcome to EmpowHer. Hyperthyroidism is often caused by the following:
■Immune system produces antibodies that cause the thyroid gland to overproduce thyroid hormone
■ Thyroid nodules or tumors
■Toxic uninodular goiter—a single nodule in the thyroid gland
■Toxic multinodular goiter—multiple areas in the thyroid gland which overproduce thyroid hormone
■ Subacute thyroiditis—inflammation of the thyroid gland (often later leads to hypothyroidism )
If you have any additional questions, you can check out our hyperthyroidism link here http://www.empowher.com/condition/hyperthyroidism.

I hope this helps answer your question.
