Does anyone know if there is a link between peripheral neuropathy and hypothyroidism? I have seen my GP recently because of unexplained pain in two of my toes on my left foot. She said it could be due to neuropathy and has referred me for a scan of my foot. I know my B12 was low on my last blood test and I read that that could be a possible cause. I'm not diabetic and I don't drink alcohol so I was wondering if being hypothyroid had any bearing on it, and if so, why.
