I work nights and I go though days where I can’t sleep and want to eat all night long. Then some days I want to sleep and hardly eat. This Hyperthyroidism really sucks. On second week on medicines.
Sometimes I feel so sick I can't eat or make a decent meal for myself. Other times when I get opportunity to eat I can't stop eating even though I don't even feel hunger at times.

Hyperthyroidism or overactive thyroid results in increased production of thyroid hormones from the thyroid gland. It can be primary or secondary and presents with signs of accelerated metabolism such as weight loss and tachycardia. Decreased tolerance to heat and irritability are also common. Radioactive iodine administration and medication to control heartbeat are recommended.
