hi there
your symptoms sound more like the features of neuropathy
i think you have nerve compressions

we can confirm this using xray of cervical and lumbar spine and ncv of affected limbs.

as far as stroke is concerned, i doubt you have that cause u dont say you have any hemiparesis (paralysis in common language).

you also have hypothyroidism. you should have it checked to make sure it is completely corrected. incompletely corrected hypothyroidism is a cause of neuropathy.

if you still doubt you have had a stroke, get an mri brain as soon as possible.

best of luck.
