In brief: Yes

Not common, but certainly not rare.
Most can be managed with certain types of anti-thyroid drugs (some are contraindicated in pregnancy - your OB and endocrinologist know this). Some require surgery, which is safest in the middle trimester, although surgery should be the exception, not the rule. If you need surgery find a surgeon who is expert in thyroidectomy for hyperthyroidism.
