i'm hypo but i've had those symptoms. numbness and tingling in the extremities. seems like they "fall asleep" more easily.

yours might be thyroid related too, though you're hyper and i'm hypo.

I have numbness and tingling in my hands and feet, too. I am not hyper, but hypo. Yes, it is definitely thyroid related.

I get it too. Thought it was Carpel tunnel syndrome or something but it happen inmy legs too from time to time. Feels like some tied a tight rope around my forearm for like 12 minutes and then released it and I get the feeling back. Really weird.
