Hashimoto's

I have hastimatos thyroiditis, an autoimmune disease. I've been having other symptoms like weak arms and legs, tingling feet-especially after a shower/bath, and sometimes I'm dizzy. I just wonder it is part of my thyroid disease or MS...
Makes me worry

Check B12 and caclium levels and also confirm thyroid function is adequate on current meds.

I'm not doctor but back a long time ago when I was flailing around trying to figure out what was wrong, I noted unpleasant similarities in MS symptoms. I suspect it's yet another disease with a lot of generalized odd symptoms.

I have another endocrine disorder, so you mileage may vary, but I had definite muscle and nerve issues that eventually went away with treatment.  And hypothyroid effects everything in you body, everything.

Could bring up the tingling with your doctor.  Likely not MS.
