About tingling sensation:
Hello and thank you for asking!
I have gone carefully through your concern.
Once you change the dose of levothyroxine it takes 4 weeks to see the clinical and lab results. So you need to check TSH after 4 weeks every time you change the dose.
The symptoms you described are suggestive for hypocalcemia (low calcium level) and i would suggest to check electrolytes before you go to neurologist.
Hope the information will help.
Check calcium before;
You should test ot before as the dose of calcium will depend on how low it is. Than after it is confirmed treatment should be started.
