I was diagnosed with graves disease 7 years ago. Had radioactive iodine treatment. Now on 125mg synthroid. Every time my levels are off even a little, but in the normal range, I have symptoms that the endocrinologist say aren't thyroid related. The last time I saw my doc, my symptoms had gotten so bad that he wanted me to see a neurologist immediately. I have been having painful electric shocks, cramping and severe tightening in muscles where I can't straighten out my hand, leg ect.., tremor in my right hand, but sometimes in both hands or legs, just a finger and once on my tongue. I also have walking difficulty where I have trouble picking up my right foot. I move slowly, shuffle, lose balance. I have had 2 occasions of not being able to make my hand move the way I needed it to. I had similar symptoms when i was first diagnosed with graves. I went through all of the neurological testing and everything came back fine. This time around, I have had an xray and mri so far. (both were fine). I could really use some good advice or a lead about where i should go for some help.
