Suggest treatment for partial seizures, dizziness, hyperventilation and minor arthritis
Both ( hypothyroidism and seizure) are probable.
Hi and thanks for using HCM.
I have read your query and understand your concerns.
Symptoms you describe could be side effects of hypothyroidism treatment, than hypothyroidism itself.
Levothyroxine ( I assume used to treat hypothyroidism) dosage should be adjusted according to clinical evaluation and TSH levels.
Since there are neurologic complains such tingling sensation, face deformity, a small possibility of your wife's symptoms remain partial sensory seizures.
In some cases it is difficult to register them in standard EEG, and special EEG study with additional electrodes could evidence them. This needs to be discussed with the Neurologist.
If you notice alterated consciousness, any leg or arm weakness, prolonged difficulty interacting with your wife, then you should get your wife back to hospital for reevaluation.
Hope this answers your question.
I remain at your disposal for further questions or clarifications.
It is not a definite stroke clinically and by imaging.
Hi and thanks for asking back.
Weakness that comes and goes of one side of the body accompanied by atypical headaches, is more consistent with a Transient ischemic attack.
MRI is the best tool in evaluating early stroke too, so, clinically and by imaging there is no definitive stroke. Transient ischemic attack is a "temporary" stroke, it leaves no permanent neurologic deficit.
What about vision of right eye of your wife, does it comes and goes too during these episodes?
Those symptoms still could be explained by partial seizures too, so, in my opinion these two possible diagnoses and diagnostic tests should be discussed with the Neurologist.
