Hyperthyroidism with left sided weakness/tingling/restless

From: courtneymm83 - 2 weeks 1 day ago

Hi all,
I recently went to the doctor with left sided weakness, tingling, and a restless feeling. It happens in my left arm and leg and I get a strange sensation in my face as well (as well as some pain that worsens when pressed). Only the left side is ever affected. My muscles on that side get painful as well- they get tense as if I've been working out.
After a ridiculous amount of tests, I was told I have hyperthyroidism (she said early Hashimoto's maybe) and a positive ANA. So she referred me to a rheumatologist. She didn't put me on any medication for the thyroid issue and I'm assuming, just wants the rheumatologist to do that. The problem is, it's going to take quite a while to get an appointment with the specialist. So I'm stuck with these weird symptoms and I'm not even sure they're related to my diagnosis.
My question is, for those of you who have thyroid issues, does this all sound connected to the hyperthyroid (early Hashimoto's) diagnosis I was given? I feel like I'm in the dark here.
