Hi,
Thanks for posting your query.

Let’s understand the basics first:

Hyperthyroidism means thyroid gland makes too much thyroid hormone. It controls your metabolism, which is how your body turns food into energy. It also affects your heart, muscles, bones, and cholesterol.

Having too much thyroid hormone can make a lot of things in your body speed up. The problems that you are having are due to excessive thyroid hormone.

The reasons for thyroid disease could be many.

Please get in touch with thyroid specialist (endocrinologist) in your city and take his advice.

Treatments depend upon the probable cause.

Treatment includes:
-Drugs for controlling heart rate and anti thyroid medications
-Radio active iodine
-Surgery etc.

With regular treatment and constant follow up you will be able to live normal life.

I hope this helps


Wishing you good health.

Regards,

Dr.Pragnesh
