Hi Anon,

Welcome to EmpowHER. Hyperthyroidism signs and symptoms may include:

  1. Sudden weight loss, even when your appetite and diet remain normal or even increase
  2. Rapid heartbeat (tachycardia) — commonly more than 100 beats a minute — irregular heartbeat (arrhythmia) or pounding of your heart (palpitations)
  3. Increased appetite
  4. Nervousness, anxiety and irritability
  5. Tremor — usually a fine trembling in your hands and fingers
  6. Sweating
  7. Changes in menstrual patterns
  8. Increased sensitivity to heat
  9. Changes in bowel patterns, especially more frequent bowel movements
  10. An enlarged thyroid gland (goiter), which may appear as a swelling at the base of your neck
  11. Fatigue, muscle weakness
  12. Difficulty sleeping

Here are some resources for you
