If your thyroid becomes overactive (hyperthyroidism), underactive (hypothyroidism) you could experience a range of health problems. Hyperthyroidism is when the thyroid is overactive and makes too much thyroid hormone. Hypothyroidism is when the thyroid is underactive and does not make enough thyroid hormone.

The most common symptoms of hyperthyroidism are:
