I can't find information on synthroid causing it so I can't say and I wouldn't second guess a doctor. Is that the only medication he's on? There are many medications that can cause tardive dyskinesia. Perhaps it could be something else. One thing I can tell you is an mri or eeg can't diagnose tardive dyskinesia. There's no definitive test for it but a neurologist who is a movement disorders specialist knows what to look for and can provide an expert diagnosis. I would seek a referral to a movement disorders specialist and then see what they tell you. There are other neurological disorders as well but any movement disorders specialist can diagnose tardive dyskinesia and tell you how to follow up.
