If you have Hashimoto's you can get very dizzy..often when I am  very hypo I get dizzy too. So yes, you can have dizziness with thyroid disorders.

Can you tell me if there are other symptoms that come with the dizziness like ear fullness, stiff neck? Also how long after you leveled out did the symptoms go away?
I appreciate any information you can give me. My tsh and free t4 have just gotten into range. tsh 1.0 free t4 1.31. Thanks

Mine have not gone away, as I am still not leveled out yet after my TT in Dec 07. I still get ear fullness, (most annoying when on the telephone!), and my stiff neck is still here too. So I can't help you on that one to answer your question!
  If your range has just been reached it may take a little longer for the symptoms to abate. Give it time.
Cheers

Well you just gave me a load of information. I have other issues beside the thyroid and have been going through neuro exams etc. I was hoping these things were thyroid related and not what I am dealing with. So your answers have helped me more than you know. Hopefully in the next few weeks my whole life may get a bit better.

Thanks again

I get dizziness and joint aches if I am heading HYPO and hot sweats, fast  if heading HYPER.
As for anxiety, I get that BOTH ends of the scale.
Once your levels are 'out' then the symptoms come.
Keep a log of how you feel each day and you may be able to 'catch it' before it happens.
Thats what I did and my levels have been stable for quite a while now.
I had RAI in June  2008 and keyhole TT in September 2008.
I am on Eutroxig (sodium thyroxine) and couldnt be better.
Gone back to work fulltime after 3 years struggling working from home and am also studying online for 12 months.
Give yourself time.....
