When one experiences neuropathy symptoms, they generally all feel the same agonizing things in their body: headaches, numbness in feet, tingling in feet and arms, and abnormal muscle spasms. Diabetes along with thyroid disease can also have some similar symptoms as well. Since thyroid disease is actually a disorder pertaining to the endocrine gland, we can see that the neuropathy and thyroid disease symptoms may look the same. The endocrine gland regulates the metabolism as well as every cell in the human body, including your nerves. When you have a thyroid or hormonal imbalance, the thyroid gland affects the nervous system in that it speeds up or slows down resulting in neuropathy related symptoms.
