Hi, I am a 56 year old man, I was diagnosed with Vestibular Neuronitis (VN) 10 months ago and have not improved in all that time (I have had all the usual MRI/MRA scans as this was neceassry to enable a diagnosisi of VN). I have been monitored for underactive thyroid for around 4 years as my TSH results have ranged from around 5 to 8.7 during that time, it is currently 7. There is an overlap in a lot of the VN symptoms with Hypothyroidism but some of my symptoms are not typical of VN, these include pins and needles/tingling around my head and face, tops of my legs and the bottom of my arms/top of my hands. I also get a very nervous edgy feel, have a poor sleep pattern and feel very fatigued most days and occasional sluggish speach. I feel that my VN is not improving as I may be suffering issues with my thryoid but all my GP's surgery ever do is continue to monitor my TSH results. Are these symptoms typical of Hypothyroidism and if so does anyone have any advice on what I should do? .
