What to do if I have been diagnosed with thyroiditis. I am in the hyperthyroid stage. how long does it usually last?

Usually 2-6 weeks: Thyroiditis is inflammation of the thyroid gland, resulting in stored thyroid hormone(TH) leaking into the bloodstream faster than normal release of TH, so that TH levels are higher than normal.
