Does having hyperthyroidism make you likely to have sudden mood swings?

1 doctor agrees

In brief: Yes

This is one symptom of hyperthyroidism (although there are many other causes for mood swing as well).
I would treat the hyperthyroidism. If the mood swing goes away, then the hyperthyroidism was the cause. If not, continue to search for other etiologies.
