if you are found to have underactive thyroid function, your doctor will treat you with supplement thyroid hormone pills such as levothyroxine or synthroid or thyroxine.
these are the same thyroid hormones as your body's own thyroid gland would produce and oral intake very easily supplements and brings your thyroid hormone levels back up to normal
this all can be checked with blood testing.
a TSH or thyroid stimulation hormone level of greater than 3.0 indicates that your thyroid hormone function is low
low thyroid hormone tends to cause symptoms such as fatigue, weight gain, dry skin, constipation, feeling cold, hair loss.
however, your symptoms of pins and needles in your legs and foot and fingers may or may not get better with the thyroid hormone supplementation.
ask your doctor also to check a magnesium level as well, low blood magnesium level might be causing your nerve tingling issue.
also ask to be referred to see a neurology specialist about your nerves as well.
low B12 vitamin, low magnesium, diabetes should all be checked for.
