In brief: Hyperthyroid

Letting hyperthyroid go untreated leads to heat intolerance, weight loss, irritability, widened blood pressures, sleeplessness, hyperactivity, tachycardia (rapid heart rate) and increased appetite.
Continued lack of treatment in very extreme situations could result in presenting in the emergency room and being mistaken for a heart attack. Get treated. It is not costly.
