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?
