Unlikely


Very unlikely. If you had a goiter, and if you lived in an iodine deficient part of the world (the US is not one of these), and if you greatly increased your dietary iodine, it could precipitate hyperthyroidism. More likely it is coincidental Graves disease. Do thyroid problems run in your family?

Probably not


Your Multi-Nodular Goiter has probably evolved from euthyroid to hyperthyroid (or toxic). Thyroid hormone from tablets could take 6- weeks or so to clear, and if the TSH was very low or undetectable, it could take longer than 6 weeks to completely re-equilibrate after stopping thyroid tablets. But if thyroid hormone levels are still high, or TSH stays low, your thyroid is probably overactive.

No false hyperthyroi


No. Seafood contains iodine. A big dose of iodine can cause hyperthyroidism is some susceptible people with an established goiter, but this is uncommon in the US, since there is a lot of iodine in our diets, with or without seafood.

I don't know of any direct correlation between hyperthyroidism and dental caries. I have read that children with hyperthyroidism are dentally precocious (teeth erupting at an earlier age) and if their oral hygiene is not good, then certainly that can contribute to dental caries

No.


But if they are combined with a decongestant (such as Pseudoephedrine/Sudafed) then the decongestant can cause some symptoms which can also occur with hyperthyroidism, including shakiness, fast pulse, feeling "wired", or anxious.

Unusual


Most thyroid cancers do not produce excess thyroid hormone. Very rarely, a single nodule can produce excess hormone and be cancerous, but those are very unusual
