Thank you for posting your query.
Pins and needles in the left hand could be due to carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS). In CTS, a nerve in the hand (median nerve) gets compressed at the wrist level. This can be confirmed by nerve conduction studies. Underlying hypothyroidism should be excluded.
Please get back if you require any additional information.
