Hello. I am a 61 year old woman, not overweight and in pretty good health. I am hypothyroid and on levothyroxine (75) Starting 15 months ago, I now have tingling feet most of the time and a prickly tingling in both hips - at the sides mostly but a little underneath my backside. My legs also can be tingly and there is a numb feeling very occasionally in them - they can feel cold. I have been diagnosed many moons ago as having Reynauds. I have been to my very overworked Doctor in the GP who said all tingling is sciatica. I do not believe this is sciatica. Other info is that in the last 6 months I have been having excruciating foot night cramps. I was diagnosed with first signs of Raynauds many moons ago and wonder if this something to do with Raynauds. I would also like to know how this works. I have paid £26 which has been removed through Pay Pal but I understood that I only pay if I get a satisfactory answer? Many thanks for your reading of this. Mary
Hi--sorry for the delay. Do you still need help?
The tingling feet are now pretty well constant. The hip tingling comes and goes but has been around now for about 6 months. The hip tingling is quite a sharp pain.
No. Nothing at all in hands or arms. All lower body. Just had liver and kidney bloods done and all well. No diabetes as far as I know. My only known diagnosis is Raynauds, and Hypothiroidism.
Hmmmm. I am on Levothiroxine 75. I do not know the TSH value. It was tested last week and my doctor said it was "fine". I do not know what it was. He said the meds did not need changed as all was well. He is not interested in my tingling. He says it is sciatica. I do not feel this is right.
Thank you very much. I will look into this. Mary
