It can definately cause mood swings and all the other symptoms that you describe. Therefore, it is important to see a Physician to have all the necessary tests done and to start treatment accordingly.

I was diagnosed through blood test and a sonar, with an over active thyroid. I have a lump 3.5cm x 2.5cm' s on my left thyroid. I went to the doctor because I have become extremely highly strung, moody and am loosing an excessive amount of hair ... I have an appointment on Thursday, 19 Feb with a general surgeon who will then tell me what can be done, but in the mean time I would like to know what supplements or foods can or should I be taking to help me!?
