Hi, current problem is more suggestive of positional vertigo, she needs medications to control it. Thyroid inflammation usually not requires antibiotics , except in very rare scenarios. Can you mention which antibiotics she was on , and details of tests prescribed. Positional vertigo is a very common problem at this age but you should get an opinion from your doctor to exclude serious problems like vertebrobasilar stroke.
