Is the pins and needles only after the vaccination.? Have you experienced similar symptoms before

Expert:  ravikumarr replied 18 days ago.

Any past history Of tyroid problems

Customer: replied 18 days ago.
it started about 2 days after the vaccination, I initially ignored it because I thought it was due to holding the baby.
Customer: replied 18 days ago.
I don't think I had issues with tyroid but some members of my family did.

Is the tingling in one hand or both hands

Customer: replied 18 days ago.
just one hand and it is not the hand that i had the vaccination in.
Customer: replied 18 days ago.
it is mostly two fingers in my right hand, not the whole hand.
Expert:  ravikumarr replied 18 days ago.

What fingers are affected and which side please

Customer: replied 18 days ago.
middle and ring finger on right hand
Expert:  ravikumarr replied 18 days ago.

It is unlikely to be of of any significance and I don't think this is because of the vaccination. Do you have any weakness in the same hand?

Customer: replied 18 days ago.
are you still there?
Customer: replied 18 days ago.
no, I don't have weakness
Expert:  ravikumarr replied 18 days ago.

It should settle down by itself. But since there is a family history of hypothyroidism, I would recommend you to have your thyroid hormones checked
