Thyroid

Had hyperthyroidism then had total thyroidectomy, still get the same symptoms. Around my chin area gets a weird sensation, like a tingle. The only way I can explain it is if you went outside with that part of my face wet in the freezing cold, its a weird feeling, then it goes away.

Does it seem like this definition of paraesthesia?  "Paresthesia is an abnormal sensation such as tingling, tickling, pricking, numbness or burning of a person's skin with no apparent physical cause. The manifestation of a paresthesia may be transient or chronic, and may have any of dozens of possible underlying causes."   Paraesthesia occurs frequently with hypothyroidism.  Since you have had a TT, and have to be on thyroid med, under treatment  resulting in hypothyroidism seems like a possible cause.   So please tell us about any other symptoms you have.   Also, what thyroid med are you taking and what is the daily dosage?   Please post your most recent thyroid related blood test results and reference ranges shown on the lab report.   If tested for Vitamin D, B12 and ferritin please post those results as well.

I have experienced neuropathic c pain little shocks and tingling acupuncture really helped  
Acupuncture may give some relief, but will it stop the problem from recurring?  I am not convinced of that.  If you have had thyroid issues, are you sure your Free T4 and Free T3, cortisol, Vitamin D, B12 and ferritin are optimal?
