The 9th post on the Information Archive lists some Hyperthyroid symptoms. Readking the posts here, it is NOT all inclusive. Search for "Hyper" only on the thyroid board and you will find a lot of threads mentioning it and maybe some infomation you can use.
I haven't seen a % of Hypo/hyper. MOST are hypo, however. A couple here on this board seem to be both.
What are your symptoms? Have you had any tests?

Symptoms lists are subjective. Just because it is on a list doesn't necessarily mean that's what you have. I say this because when I am hyperT (according to labs) I have mostly hypoT symptoms. Very confusing. Over time I am learning what "my" hyperT and hypoT symptoms are.
Have you done a search on the internet? There are some extensive lists out there.

The hand/finger wiggles interest me.
Do yours have any cadence to them or are they totally random like noise?
Do they happen most when your hand is totally relaxed or slightly taught?
(I guess if you are holding your hands up they are not totally relaxed...haha)
Pretend a milky way (fuzzy thing) is floating by and you try to pluck it out of the air with your fingers. Now hold your fingers like that (all fingers together). Now bend wrist sort if in a right angle. Ajust muscle tension (should be just slightly taught) and postition to maximize wiggles.
What do you get? Anything? Random or a cadence?
Do you ever feel wiggles/vibrations in any other parts? Other muscles, inside of you?
