Thyroxine, lantus (insulin glargine): I understand your distress. Thank you for informing about Thyroidectomy, Thyroxine and Lantus (insulin glargine). Thyroxine can cause anxiety which may cause dizziness and brain fog feeling. See Endocrinologist for Thyroid status and Diabetes status as Thyroxine may interfere with blood glucose control and reduce the effectiveness of Lantus (insulin glargine); and Treatment. See ENT Specialist for Sinus pressure and ear pain.
