Hyperthyroid: If the hyperthyroid is due to generalized inflammation of the thyroid as in your case, medications can be used to manage them. If it becomes difficult to control with meds or have side effects then surgery may be required. Sometimes it is caused because of localized swelling and then surgery or other options may become necessary as well.
