Dear Ma'am,

Sorry to hear about your problem. From your symptoms it is quite clear that you are suffering from hyperthyroidism. You definitely require a thyroid scan for this problem, as it will tells us the exact cause of your problem.
Secondly, you need to take neomercazole regularly as it will help in bringing down your thyroid levels to the normal value. You also need to continue ciplar as it helps in keeping the heart rate and axiety levels under control.
Please get regular thyroid function tests done (every 30-40 days) till the time they reach the normal value.

Hope you get well soon.
