In brief: Hyperthyroidism risk

Female gender increases risk several fold; having a recent major stressful event also increases risk.
These include childbirth, surgery and major emotional states. A comprehesive list of thyroid related symptoms (all non-specific) may be found in my book endocine & metabolic disorders clinical lab testing manual 2009 [crcpress.Com].
