Hi peggy64, I get tingling in my arms from low calcium..yes I know it is not the standard symptom but it is one I get. If I only take 2 tablets and not take the other 2 my forearms go all tingly. How are your calcium levels?
I get tingles in the arms and fingers too. I don't know what it is. I am on 25 mcg Levothyroxine. My calcium was normal in April, so I don't know. I know that people who have thyroid surgery have more of a calcium issue due to the surgery, but, without sugery, have no clue what would cause it. Would love to know, it is bothersome, isn't it!
Hi all, thanks for getting back with me. My b12 is fine. The last time it was checked my calcium was low normal. I do take a calcium, magnesium, and zinc supplement.
I just know this is super annoying. Its like ok, lethargic, mental sluggish, no libido, no interest in any activities, insomnia, dry eyes, brain fog to the max, bloating, insomnia, insomnia, insomnia, and now, tingling in the arms.
sorry to hear about the tingling. . .it's so frustrating isn't it,
i have a feeling that mine is back as well.
we cut my calcium & vitamin d dosages this week and i was feeling good, but today i'm having slight tingles in my hands and other places (i think)
i'm hoping they're more anxiety related than calcium.
Along one arm...that would be neurological, I think. Does it reach your fingertips, and do you ever feel pain (almost like pinched nerve pain)?
I've gotten the tingling sensation a few times before but I think it was in both arms, I'm not on any thyroid medications, and my calcium levels were fine the last two times they were tested...I've always attributed it to heightened sensation, which can be a symptom of many diseases.
Let us know if you elucidate where these annoyances are coming from!
It seems to get better when I take my vit d. Vit D helps absord the calcium, so I am wondering if there might be an absorption issue going along. I have read that the body has a difficult time assimilating nutrients when thyroid disease is present.
I have tingling and numbness in my hands and feet since i diagnosed Hypothyroid because of autoimmunity . I feel better when my TSH level is around 1.0-1.5 . Recently also discover i am low in vitamin D (23) which is low , started taking 4000IU for last 1 month my level is now 37 (D2=12, D3=25) . I can tell you honestly i feel lot better , very less muscles pain /less joint pain , almost no tingling/very less numbness . I must vitamin D level has some connection if you guys do google will find lot of articles. Hang in there guys
ah ha!! Amazing - I have posted today about the very same thing! (See my post on the forum).
So do you guys reckon I should take some calcium supplements? Or vit D? Or both?
I would LOVE your opinion as my arms and hands are tingling and sore again tonight. Feels almost like a kind of bruising in my fingertips too. Very strange sensation.
Hi. I was just complaining about that this mornnig. Woke up with it again so my typing is bad. both hands - sometimes feet. I had a really bad B-12 deficiency and if you read up on that it will tell you right there that if it gets bad enough it becomes a neurological problem and tingling will occur. My B-12 is "normal" now (that's what tey tell me) but the tingling is back this morning with a fury. Ihate it. It also is a symptom of hypo (at least that's what I read so I wasn't sure if it was the hashi's or the B-12) until they tested my B-12 again and said after the shots it was within a normal range.
It's irritating but it will go away sometime this morning or mid-day. Comes and goes. Crazy.
Thanks for stopping and commenting. I hate that you are having the tingling thing to. I don't know why, but it is mostly on the left side, and not all the way down to my fingers. I can't figure it out.
It seems to do better when I take vit d, is the one thing I have found to help it.
My B12 is better than fantastic so that is not the cause of my tingling.
Of course you may use the word "elucidate". I was actually proud of myself for remembering that it existed and what it meant!
Have any of you looked into Vitamin B-12 deficiencies? Or even low levels of Vitamin B-12?...er, I see that you have, Peggy, but for some other people, this might be the problem. It sounds like we all need to take our vitamins (and calcium!). =) I get the tingles every now and then, mainly in my hands/fingers. Rather annoying!
