I never know I can get STD thru oral,wasn't educated as much, after tat happened to him around the same time I started to get sick again and found out I had acute pharyngitis and while I was the I had std test and request a throat swab ,still waiting to hear back, they gave me 4tablets of azithromycin 250mg for being exposed and amoxicillin for my pharyngitis.

Because she was so sick her doctor sent her to the hospital and she was admitted with walking pneumonia. The doctors at the hospital said they didn't think she really had Lyme and sent us on our way. In 2010 she had a new PCP who re-tested her and again her IgM was positive. She was given a months worth of doxycycline and that was all. About 2 months ago her IgM was positive again(IgG always negative) and she was given a months worth of amoxicillin.
If the other symptoms came later I would go back and see yoru doctor as it sounds like you ahve a secondary infection in your chest and may have walking pneumonia (Mycoplasma pneumoniae) or bronchitis. I am just trying to find what exactly happened to you. It does sound like you need to go back to the doc.
If your doctor is worried that you might have pneumonia, a chest x-ray can look to see if there's an infection, especially for those who have coughed for more than 3 weeks. With a viral bronchitis, you should avoid antibiotics especially zpacks (Zithromax / azithromycin) which are overprescribed for these symptoms , and can lead to side effects and adverse drug reaction such as rash, antibiotic drug resistance and yeast infections.
I went to the doctor and they believe that we both have walking pneumonia which is a bacterial infection that can be somewhat supressed by some antibiotics but not completely cured. I was given arythromicin antibiotic and a metrodol (prednisone)steroid pack. Good thing I didn't wait to go...
Also, throughout this whole time, my voice has been hoarse/scratchy, and it's STILL (day #17) not normal! WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME? I was on amoxicillin for 7 days (was told bronchitis from doc and given prescrip.), and it didn't do anything...this makes me think it's definitely viral. Right now, it's a stuffy/runny nose, a lingering cough that is usually productive, and a hoarse voice. Is it normal to have a lingering, but substantially BETTER (if that's possible) cough 2.
A 7 day course of antibiotics (Amoxicillin) however, is not a treatment for tuberculosis. It is possible that your doctor is thinking of pneumonia. The use of antibiotics in this setting is no longer recommended due to the risk of developing antibiotic resistance. Of course recommendations would change based on prevailing microorganisms in the region, but there is a general trend that treatment with antibiotics to make sure that any infection will be covered is losing favor.
i have been taking 1 lortab 500 about 10am every morning for a month i started taking them for the pain from coughing and from the hernia near my ostomy i also have a hernia on my right side that for now is managable i take 1 blue 10 zanax everynight to calm my panic and sleep i am taking lasix and klor for swelling i take musinex because i still have flem but no fever and no blood or other serious symptoms ok this is where it gets ugly i am selling my business because of money issues my wife
I've had success with Amoxicillin and Amoxil in the past for this but don't have enough info to help my MD make a decision. I'm too far along to think about stopping tx now. Five weeks left! Also, anyone ever heard of taking "Colloidal Silver " for infections, and how well can a damaged liver handle that? Thanks for any and all suggestions!
It causes me to have spasm coughing and if I cannot control this to 3 or 4 coughs my windpipe closes over making it hard to breath in or out. The last one about 2 years ago stopped me breathing in and out completely for 10 to 15 seconds and I thought I had bought it. The spasm cough causes it all and when it goes away (usually 4 to 5 days) things are relatively normal although a normal cough stays with me for weeks after.
My husband's chest pain keeps moving around too (has had since 11/15). He took amoxicillin for 2 1/2 days and was no better, so I pushed him back to the dr. He was given something else...can't remember what, not Zithromax, has finished those pills and it's not gone--has just moved into the right side of his chest, as well. So you are fortunate that yours went away so quickly and you were able to go on with treatment.
) He said I would be getting regular SOC (PegIntron by Schering and Riba, I believe) for 48 weeks with the HCV 796 for the duration. I guess I'll just have to wait and see exactly what it will be. Is there anyone out there who is enrolled yet in this trial, or anyone out there considering it? Or ... anyone out there with any words of wisdom / encouragement :) ? Thanks. Best to all.
I am currently having many of these same problems. Tickle in throat, sharp pain, cough, tears, nose dripping. This has been happening for the past 5 months. I've been to a ENT. He said it was my tonsils. I had them out. At first while I was on meds during my recovery from the surgery the symptoms stopped. But after I stopped taking the pain killers anti-biotic and the steroids the tickle came back. I've been taking Previcid for acid reflux but this has not stopped the attacks.
like this morning for instance, all I was doing was walking around. I went to get my breakfast and there it was, the stitch that's in the wrong place. The pain always occurs in the same place, in the left lung (or around because I don't know if it's to do with the lungs or muscles etc) just above my stomach. Again. I don't think it is anything too chronic which is why I am on here not at my GP.. although if it does sound bad I think I will head off to see him.
This regimen helps for about 3 to 4 hours but it always returns. I took Lunesta for a couple of times but not 2 nights in a row. Thats the only common thread I can see. Hope this helps.
Colloidal silver is quack medicine. Stuff kills some bacteria in a petri-dish and sucks money from people. Exercise, esp. aerobic exercise, good nutrition, no caffiene, reduced sugar intake, and staying well hydrated is the best non-drug "therapy" around (yes, read article about caffiene and AST levels).
So i saw this doctor who also thought it was sinus related and put me on Lexapro for anxiety, Nasacort nasal spray and Augmentin (amoxicillin), well the augmentin caused an intestinal infection and colitis which i still have trouble with and the headache was still there.
Every article on the internet has to do with Strep B in prenatal women (when it is very dangerous for the baby) and nothing about Strep B for regular women in their 40's like me :) Thanks, I'd love to hear from anyone who has ever been treated for this disease or any doctors out there.
After 1 and 1/2 days feel better and pressure is leaving but scared because I know after this 6 days I'll be back to where I was and I'm extremely run down and need to rebuild to fight whatever this is. Scheduled for allergy testing the end of the month. Have always had sinus, but NEVER like this and for SO long. Exhausted. If anyone gets relief please post, as will I.
But I'm currently serving in the military and i've been to the doctor for this before and they checked to see if i had a hurnia. All my doctor said was that it wasn't a hurnia, they think its just normal or a fluke, and would not give me a referall to see a specialist at a civilian hospital. So now i'm stuck between a rock and a hard place with no help. I'm working with some of my supervisors to go up the chain n get me a referrall to see a specialist but so far nothing has worked.
I also had dental surgery, last Thursday, so am on Amoxicillin for that as well as a little Vicodin at night. They had to remove a very decayed tooth and begin prep for bridge. Yes, I have also been blessed (lol) with periodontal disease so have had several surgeries with that. The thing that bugs me is I am over 5 months out from my surgery and while I feel better than I did at 2 weeks, like you, I guess I expected to be 100 percent by now.
Oh, and she was also tested for cystic fibrosis. She had pneumonia 2 times and had Rosefin shots once for three days for the pneumonia. That was the only time that she actually sounded good. I wonder how cruddy she feels sometimes. She runs a high grade fever about once every 6 weeks. I used to take her to the doctor and get antibiotics, but it never helped. Either way, the fever goes away after 3 days. She is not in daycare and my parents watch her sometimes.
i am a single parent and don't know how in the world i will support my children if i can't work. now I'm 33, i have had pneumonia for 4 weeks and still have not gotten better. i get sinus infections all the time especially during that time of the month. i have had my share of migraines during that time of the month too. now they are telling me that my thalassemia may be getting worse. i didn't think it could. now my heart palpation are very offten. i have at least 5 a day.
I had a ct scan to check for a pulmonary embolism and everything looked good. I have been taking previcid for 2 weeks to treat possible acid reflux, but there has been no change in my condition. I feel better when I sleep and wake up feeling great, only to have the sob return within a few hours.
It takes a good 10min or so for the air to flow freely down . My doc is arranging for an ent doc to have a look.
They sent me to a respiratory specialist and checked me for athsma. No Athsma or pneumonia. They never found any problem. Next I went to a ENT specialist and he found nothing except he said my tonscils were very large. My tonscils always feel big in the back of my throat and I also hear a small clicking noise when I swallow. It's always my right side and I get this dry tickling feeling which causes me to cough uncontrollably.
The docs said it will take time to get my system back in-balance and I have anxiety medicine (Serax/Oxazepam) for sleeping, breathing exercises to do, and instructions for mild exercise like walking or gentle yoga. I actually had 9 hours sleep last night for the first time in 6 weeks and I feel so much better! I'm still going to the naturopathic doctor weekly for B12 and other vitamin infusions to help equalize my system too.
Blood tests suggest autoimmune disfunction (positive ana, antithyroid antibodies, high IgG for parvovirus and EBV and CMV without being conclusive of connective tissue or thyroid disease. A cone beam ct scan revealed an inflammatory process in the sinus above the implant and apical periodontal inflammation on the tooth behind the implant which was also giving me night fevers. I have since had the root canal retreated on the tooth that was being blamed for my mouth discomfort.
I am experiencing chest pain, pressure, and shortness of breath, if I do anything streneous like walking, bending, or lifting. I have had ekgs, an echo, blood work, a cat scan for pulmonary emboli, chest x-rays and nothing shows up. The doctors cannot tell me what is causing this, or what to do. A full aspirin helps ease the pain. I am wondering if my LAD was affected, and if a stent would relieve the pain etc.
