Could the wrong treatment of hyperthyroidism cause any serious health damage? I have been following my own treatment but don't feel very well lately

Need endocrinologist: Treatment of hyperthyroidism should not be taken lightly. Working with a good endocrinologist is the best way to get this under control. Left untreated hyperthyroidism can result in "thyroid storm" which can be fatal.
