I don't think this is caused by thyroid problems - the examination and operation your doctor is suggesting will be the best option for treatment - what happens is that the nerve runs in a small tunnel in the wrist and if the tunnel gets too narrow, this causes pressure on the nerve. With the operation they just split the tunnel to give the nerve more "breathing space".
