Thyroid and Motion/air pressure changes

Recently I had a thyroid ultrasound and they detected multiple nodules on my goiter. At the time I was recuperating from a subaceous cyst on the back of my head and taking a sulphur-based antibiotic for that infection. The infection has been healed for nearly 3 or 4 weeks. Then I developed a sinus infection which was treated with a generic form of Augmentin (sp?) for 10 days. To make a long-story short: I've been to E.R. twice in the past week due to shortness of breath that I experienced while driving/riding in my SUV.

While I tend to get slight cases of vertigo from time to time (barometric changes bring this on) I have never had that tightness in my chest area before and it scared the daylights out of me! All my bloodwork, x-rays and e.k.g. were normal and my TSH levels are in the normal range. Has ANYONE experienced this pressure on the thyroid while riding in or operating a motor vehicle?

Re: Thyroid and Motion/air pressure changes

Welcome to the board although I'm sorry you're dealing with this.

Are you currently being treated for the thyroid?

Please note that normal aka within ranges does not mean there cannot be a problem. Do you have any recent labresults, if so please feel free to post them (including reference ranges since they can be different for each lab).

hang in there!

Re: Thyroid and Motion/air pressure changes

Yes, I have been on synthroid/levothyroxine for close to 42 years and a dosage of 112 mg for the past couple of decades. I just don't know if the sulphur-based drug or the Augmentin drug interfered with the effectiveness of the synthetic thyroid med I take.
