Migraines and hypothyroidism

My teenage daughter has experiences a significant health crisis in the last six months.  She has been diagnosised with significant hypothyroidism (now under control with meds), migraines with facial numbness (never experienced before), low blood pressure and ongoing left hip pain (has had xrays, MRI and CTs - all normal). Not sure they are really related to one another, but we are desperate to find answers or even possible clues.  Could this be immune system deficiency related?  Could this be neurological?  Is there any correlation between any of these things?  She also has a history of tether cord release approximately 2 years ago.  Any advice would be helpful.

The below Mayo Clinic website thoroughly discusses everything you could possibly want to know about hypothyroidism.  It talks about the low blood pressure your daughter has, and a whole raft of symptoms, why people have it, and so forth.  There are also websites that are completely devoted to the hypothyroid health problem, which might further address questions you have, if you'll do an online search for those.  Perhaps by studying this stuff, you can better weed out what parts of her condition are thyroid and what might be neurological, like the migraines and facial numbness.
