What Causes Slurred Speech And Involuntary Muscle Movements?
Endocrine disorder with neuro-muscular symptoms
Thank you for your query. I can understand your concerns.
With your thyroid disorder, occasional sky high BP, nodules on one side of throat (? metastatic lymph node at this age of 60 yrs) possibility of Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia (Men 2) Syndromes should be excluded. Serum calcitonin level is suggested.
Neuro-muscular symptoms seem to be transient in nature in your case. Detail neurological examination is essential to arrive at a diagnosis. Fasciculation (one minute you feel fine-then no control of muscles in leg) is most likely, which can occur in thyrotoxic myopathy.
