A 28-year-old male asked:

Can a low t3 (liothyronine) be the cause of tingling in the hands and feet, and burning in the arms? i've had a normal brain mri and back/neck, as well as neuro exam.

It can but: neuropathy could be caused by hypothyroidism. low T3 (liothyronine) is not enough to make the diagnosis. you need at least TSH. see your doctor.
