    I have hyper/Graves' disease . I don't sleep well, have bursts of energy then exhausted, crave anything sweet 🙄 I'm not sure but I think I have the beginnings of a goitre, very attractive 🙄😂. Maybe you need your blood tested 🤔 Perhaps your levels have spiked. I have been waiting 5 months for endocrinology appointment will be seeing someone in 2weeks time. Hang on in there and see what they say. I guess you are on medication?
