Hyperthyroidism is a pain


Hi, I'm new to this site and have been recently diagnosed for the second time with hyperthyroidism. I'm getting completely new symptoms from my first attack, putting on weight, aching all over (joints, legs, arms, hands, feet) which I can put up with. Why does my legs and arms go numb though, I can't put my one foot to the floor and now my feet are swelling at night? Could someone answer this please, and should I speak to my GP about it?

Do you have any test results? When were you last diagnosed with hyperthyroidism and what medication were you given?
