Hyperthyroidism is a condition in which the thyroid gland, which is located in the front of the neck, is overactive. This gland is important for its function to produce the hormone thyroxine, which is a hormone that regulates metabolism in the body. Hyperactivity of these glands can cause a variety of symptoms, including drastic weight loss, anxiety, irritability, difficulty sleeping, difficulty concentrating, excessive sweating, not being able to stand in a hot environment, decreased libido, weakness, fatigue, diarrhea, disturbances. fertility, palpitations, tremors, muscle twitching, hair loss, rapid breathing, lumps in the neck, and so on. In some cases, hyperthyroidism can also be accompanied by protruding eyes (exophthalmos).
The causes of hyperthyroidism can vary, including Graves' disease (autoimmune disorder), thyroiditis (inflammation of the thyroid gland), nodules (benign tumors), cancer (malignant tumors), drug side effects, pituitary gland tumors, and so on.
Even though you exhibit some of the symptoms that lead to hyperthyroidism, insomnia, fatigue, anxiety, palpitations, and swelling in your left eye, they are not necessarily caused by a thyroid gland disorder.
