    Hi Jill. Did you discuss your condition/symptoms with your doctor? What are your test numbers? We need more info so we may be able to help.

      Hi Mike, sorry no numbers yet, I think what I was really asking was do my symptoms sound familiar, to help you understand I have another health issue going on but I am fairly convinced the way I am feeling is due to my thyroid

    JILL .. if all you need to know is  ... are your symptoms typical HYPERThyroid symptoms ... then given what you've described the answer would need to be ..

    . a Yes !  

    But you have only given a small number of symptoms ... and believe me there are many many symptoms of  HYPERThyroid disease.

    To clarify things for yourself it's imperative you have the new set of bloods tested November as you said .... sooner the better 

    And from there , post the  results back on here in a new heading drawing attention to Your problem ...and request  advice .

    Put all of the figures down including figures in brackets as they are the ranges the lab uses 

    To determine where you are on the scale .

    Many people here have access to your posting and will help you by giving their experiences and advice on what to do next .

    Why don't you make a start by Googling .. HYPERThyroid symptoms  ...  and see the enormous list of symptoms there are   .. and write down all those that you can Associate your ill health with 

    Then take that list with you to your doctor when you go for Blood tests .

    I always have bloods done on an empty stomach having fasted from midnight ( or dinner ) the previous night to give a better, clearer reading .

    Best of luck

    Luv mx🌹
