Burning and Tingling hands, face, scalp

I am 52 years old and have been taking synthroid for hypothroid.  Lately, I have had burning, tingling on tops of hands, cheeks, and scalp.  During these times I get mild to severe anxiousness.  When it goes away I am fine.  Any thoughts?

Hi,

It is important to make sure if the thyroid levels are normal or not. Hypothyroidism can cause peripheral neuropathy resulting in tingling numbness. Other causes of peripheral neuropathy like B 12 deficiency and diabetes also need to be ruled out.
There is also a possibility of nerve compression in the cervical spine. This requires further evaluation by your treating doctor. Please get it done and keep us posted.
