"Hot flashes" in my hand and foot.

A few weeks ago, prior to starting the synthroid for elevated TSH levels, I started having localized hot flashes in my right hand...sometimes just half of my right hand. I have Raynaud's but I typically don't get a sudden increase in blood flow unless I'm recovering from a vasospasm, which in this case, I didn't have. I thought maybe they had to do with the TSH levels.

I've been on the synthroid for about half a month now. I haven't had my blood work rechecked yet, but anyway, the past week I've been getting these "hot flashes" on the left side of my left foot. Not the whole foot, but just the left side.

Does anyone have any ideas. Could this be related to the thyroid issue or maybe something else?
