Hyperthyroidism: Hyperthyroidism may be contributing to your anxiety/panic and temper problems. So, thyroid issues should be corrected. However, I would not let that prevent you from getting behavioral health help in the meantime. You would likely still benefit from psychotherapy and possibly psychotropic medications.
