In brief: Over active thyroid

Graves' disease is an autoimmune disorder (body makes antibodies against the thyroid) that makes the thyroid make more thyroid hormone than it should.
That increases heart rate and body temperature. It can cause tremors, frequent bowel movement, early osteoporosis. There are several treatment options you need to discuss with your doctor.
