Psychosis caused by overactive thyroid?



New member

Was just wondering if anyone on here had had a psychotic episode caused by an overactive thyroid? Out of hospital for just over a year now and when I came out they did a full physical health check and found out I had graves disease. Most doctors unsure what caused the episode of psychosis but one seems to think maybe having an overactive thyroid. Just wanted to know if anyone had the same experience x


:welcome: to the forum. I don't have experience with this as I have under active thyroid. I hope you find answers here.
