: : Thanks for posting, Lynn. It's probably related to thyroid, of course, but still a mystery for now. It's stopped -- I increased my armour dosage, started taking one before bed...I better confirm this with my doc, though.

: : : Yes, I have it too. I have been on synthroid for 13 years. My tingling and numbness didn't begin until this Feb. My TSH was on the hypER end. Even though my dosage has been lowered I still have it, just not as bad. Mine are exactly as you described. Also, on ocassion, when I cross my legs (like I usually do out of habit when typing) my legs get numb and tingly. Both legs. Not just the one that is compressed. Actually the top leg feel worse. Naturally my doctors think this is irrelevent to thyroid. I, however, am convinced that it is. Sorry I don't have a solution. Too much supplement?? Don't know.

: : : : Hello, I've been taking armour for about 5 weeks...think it's helping me feel better,
: : : : but I'm waking up with tingling arms--feels like they're asleep...and the one I'm NOT sleeping on (when I sleep on my side) seems to be worse.

: : : : Does this make sense? Anyone know what's going on?

: : : : Thanks,

: Please consult with your doctors and have your blood calcium levels checked if the tingling continues. I just had a total thyroidectomy, and was told to watch closely for tingling hands and feet as this is a primary symptom of low calcium levels. If low, they will probably advise calcium supplements with Vitamin D (to promote calcium absorption). The parathyroids control calcium absorption, and they may be impacted even if you still have your thyroid in your body.

: Hope this helps.

Thanks for the tip. My arms & feet have been tingling also (as described) & it never occurred to me that this was thyroid related.
