under active thyroid

Iread heath unlocked every day, but this is the first time Ihave written any thing, I am 77 years old, and I have ataxia, but I also have an underactive thyroid for which i take thyroxine tablets. The reason I am writing today is I pin point the ataxia starting slowly from when I first started taking thyroxine, also a neighbour who was diagnosed with under active thyroid the same time as me,and is now having simlar problems as me, is it just me, or could there be a connection hilda timmis
