Hi,

Thanks for writing in.
Interferon therapy for hepatitis C virus is associated with numbness, tingling and heaviness in extremities. This effect is however completely reversible once the therapy is over.
Hope this answers your question.

Your Thyroid tests are normal, so please do not worry on that account.
