OMG! I have the same problem... had a thyroidectomy in '93 with laryngeal nerve damage. My vocal cords were paralyzed on one side for 6 months...now this doc is retired. I have just had the paramedics called to my gym because I have this horrible stridor sound and inability to breath until I get dizzy and feel like I'm going to die....it subsides in about 2-5minutes. Everyone was scared at the gym. It sounds horrible! I am going to see an ENT on January 2....what is this?
I have ben diagnosed with an underactive thyroid and I have had problems with swallowing I am trying to swallow and it just doesnt happen. I have had my airways close and be unable to breath in or out.
My last attack happened in a shop full of people and I couldn,t ask for help. I eventually recovered but am so scared that I wont get my breath.
Can anyone advise me on how to cope or if I need to go back to the doctor.
You have to see the doctor, no doubt about it.
