Hi Tessie
I have similar problems, though mine involve the hands and feet also. Along with the tingling (and cold) I also feel a burning sensation from time to time. I've had thyroid problems since '72. Heart paplpitations and rapid heartbeat was my alert for this round as I had been symptom free for years untill a few months ago. I saw a new doc this week. She feels that this is due to the thyroid (along with a mega list of other symptoms I have). Thus begins all the new tests, etc. By chance are you on cardizem or inderal? Just wondering because I take cardizem for migraine prophylactic and though I've been on it for about 10 years, I am grabbing at straws in desperation. I even considered that this might be causing MY tingling, etc. The new doc assures me it's thyroid. Still awaiting test results and more testing. I do know that your labs can be normal and still be symptomatic. Nancy O. is wonderful for answering tough questions. She's very knowledgeable and an angel as well! I know I haven't been a lot of help, but wanted to let you know you aren't alone in what you are feeling. I've been told previously told, like you, that it could be a circulatory problem. Hang in there.

: About 5 years ago I started getting tingling feelings in my arms and legs. It almost feels like they're
: about to fall asleep and they have a cold and itching feeling. I was told by a dr. that I have vernous
: insuffiency or circulation problems. So I just lived with it. Later on had a couple of miscarriges and
: had my thyroid checked. Was diagnoised with Hashimoto's. Put on synthroid .075, TSH went to .4
: with heart palapitations. Two weeks ago was changed to .05, will be checked again in a month. Do you
: think this tingling feeling is thyroid related or just poor circulation?
