Hyperthyroid: Some symptoms of hyperthyroidism are: feeling nervous, fast heartbeat, weight loss, feeling hot, trouble sleeping, feeling anxious, sweating heavily, muscle weakness, increased appetite, frequent bowel movement...Some hyperthyroid patients will have 1-2 symptoms, some have all of them and some have none of them at all. The only way to know for sure is to get a blood test.

Not sure: This is not a typical symptom of hyperthyroidism. However there are 2 theoretical explanations on my mind: 1) your hyperthyroidism may make the muscles that move the vocal cords "shaky" as it does with other muscles. If that is the case, then it will return to normal when the hyper is corrected 2) the thyroid may be enlarged to a point that it affects the nerves that control the voice.

Hyperthyroid: You can live without treatment but can have some very serious effects of this disease. It can cause high blood pressure, heart disease, bulging of your eyes which is irreversable( think marty feldman). It can make you jittery, fatigued, lead to lose of muscle mass. It is best to get it treated. See your doctor soon.
