This is not a known side effect of the drug, however, I would stop using it for a day or two to see if that changes anything.
I would also consult with my dentist to see if anything unusual was going on with my teeth.
Hope you feel better!

these could be because of hypothyroidism, what dose of levothyroxine are you taking ,r u taking too less dose,get your thyroid profile done.

I had taken levothyroxine for a number of years with no apparent side effects. Then I began to experience tingling in my legs and subsequently throughout my body even in my tongue and face? I was tested for various conditions - even for MS. Nothing was apparent. Trying to trace back when the tingling first occurred, I realised it was when I went to an alternative chemist who prescribed a different brand. Returning to original chemist and brand I have found that tingling has almost ceased.
