Yes & many: Read about hyperthyroidism here http://www.Mayoclinic.Com/health/hyperthyroidism/ds00344/ & here http://www.Thyroid.Org/wp-content/uploads/patients/brochures/hyper_brochure.Pdf. Common treatment options include radioactive iodine, anti-thyroid medications, beta-blockers and/or surgery. Go see your family physician who can refer you to an endocrinologist and surgeon for their opinions.

Yes: Hyperthyroidism is curable. Treatment options depend on why you are hyperthyroid. Hyperthyroidism is dangerous and should be taken seriously. Talk to your doc, find out the cause so you can get treated properly. If hyperthyroidism is caused by inflammation of the thyroid, it will improve on its own without permanent treatment. See doc to get evaluated.
