I was reading about numbness and tingling in hands and feet and you make several references to long term side effects from quinolones. What do you reccomend in lieu of these antibiotics? I have recently (today) been prescribed Levaquin..Originally prescribed Keflex, but I had an allergy to amoxicillin 1 year ago--1 hive and some facial swelling--post dental surgery.At that time, I was put on prednisone and amoxicillin post an extraction--per the oral surgeon -"it was routine".

Before that, she was so full of life, making car races, flying planes, being a model for photographes, and photographer herself.
On a daily basis a have a traveling numbness/pins and needles pain from the right side of my chest up to my shoulder and down to above the center of my back. All of my symptoms are progressively getting worse and getting my intense. The past few days when my baby lays on my arm it has been "falling asleep" and this never happened before. I don't think fatique or stress is causing symptoms because I am more rested now than I have been in months.
Around 3 years ago the tearing, burning, numbness thing started on the left side of my left knee and is still numb. In Feb 09 I got a very mild case of Shingles, left a scar on my forhead form the blisters. 3 months after that the tearing, burning, numbness thing started in both heels and last night an incredibly painfull episode started up in my right knee. I think you might be on to something.

The doctor put me now on flagyl and Amoxicillin. He told me that one of the serious side eefects can be numbness (from Flagyl I think) and that I should stop immediately. Last night I began the treatment (4 times a day 250mg pills). I woke up with a light pain/numbness on my left arm, with a tickling feeling occasionally on my left palm. I would really like to continue this drug as I have read positive things about it, and also because I have lost faith on Doxycycline.

(grin) Ceftin can cross the blood brain barrier. So can Zithromax. It's advised that Ceftin is taken after meals to avoid some side effects. (Not sure how long that means.) I always took it with meals. I don't remember any huge herx or problems with Ceftin. I must have had some but not enough to cause me to stop it. Did you mean 1000 mg a day for Ceftin and 1000 mg/day for Zith? I'm sorry you and your husband are having problems with the doctor.
Since starting the first lot of antibiotics I have had pressure in the head, loud ringing in ears, numbness down left side of face, popping in ears.

Have been to Out Patient department at hospital 5 times and to her 5 times since this started in October.
It should be done with a Lyme doctor involved. Lyme doctors are open minded, and understand the effects of antibiotics. Other doctors are influenced by the anti lyme propaganda. Sorry to take so long to respond. I just added this string to my watch list.

Have you tried Alpha- lipoic acid? It's supposed to help with nerve pain. I'm doing IV"s and I still get flares of nerve pain and numbness in my hands, legs and feet. I think it's a good idea to add those abx so you're treating the co infections. I'm also thinking this just takes more time to heal. Don't give up we can heal from this!
Doctors don't always take the time to explain diagnoses, or meds and their side effects. I guess they assume that because so much info is available online, you can just look it up.
also, the meds all have side effects, even though they may help with the progression, ther are the side effects and long term effects to consider as well. Im rambling here...take care of yourself Jenny. Also, how did you find the courage to get the mris' and spinal tap done?
CoQ10 in some people may produce the side effects of dizziness, irritability, headache, fatigue, heartburn, and visual sensitivity to light.

The doctor looked at my throat and said that the tonsil seems OK. Because the antibiotic caused side effects, it was stopped. My left pinna is sometimes very sore. The neck muscles and the muscles around the ear are sore. The neck is sometimes so weak that it is shuddering. Now my elbows hurt, and the right knee is sore. Last night my leg muscles cramped very hard. The cramp did not stop until I took a warm shower. Now I am having tinnitus.

My Friends, (male - 35) I Live in Alberta Canada, Mid July of this year 2008, I had my wife rush me to emergency with numbness in the entire left side of my face, toungue, and possibly (as I was in a panic) left side of my body - arm and weakness in the legs. I thought I was having a stroke, and didnt even know what a TIA was until then. And my heart rate was through the roof. Though all these things were ruled out at emerg, I later had to fight that week to get another doc to send me for CT.
I have been experiencing facial numbness and pain on the left side including numbness that radiates down my left arm as well as tongue numbness and neck pain. Additionally, I have been experiencing visual disturbances to include eye pain and blurred vision. I was seeing a chiropractor because I believed, I had a pinched nerve in my neck. Finally one day at work, the numbness became so bad, I called my family doc. He told me to come in right away.
THOUGHT #2 When my symptoms first started, I had symptoms come on like crazy....numbness, tingling, vibrating, hugging feeling around torso, the shakes, much much more. Is it possible that the a lot of the abatement of symptoms after starting the ABX just so happened to coincide with a remission of MS (if that is the case?) THOUGHT #3 Could this be another autoimmune disorder such as RA or Lupus? I was tested for these when first seen by UCSF and they were all normal/negative.
Remember that your doctor has prescribed this medication because he or she has judged that the benefit to you is greater than the risk of side effects. Many people using this medication do not have serious side effects. This medication may cause low potassium levels in the blood (hypokalemia). Tell your doctor immediately if any of these unlikely but serious side effects occur: muscle cramps, weakness, irregular heartbeat.
Steroid nasal sprays can also be prescribed, but the medical community is unsure of the possible side-effects of long-term use of steroid nasal sprays. Antihistamines and decongestants may help relieve some of the symptoms, but just a little bit. These drugs can also make your problem worse, by making the mucus even thicker in your head. If the antibiotics and other treatments aren’t effective, then surgery is sometimes recommended.
does any one suffer from any side effects such as sweating on the side of the face and above the eye also eye twitches!
Don't know if this is a possible cause, but, 4 months ago I was on antibiotics. Remember reading the possible side effects being ruptured tendons. Any comments, or better yet, remedies would be appreciated.
it sounds like when you sleep your jaw is resting on the right side more, so that is why you have more presure on that side. all you'll need is a fitted night splint, and you should feel better right away. ear pain is usually associated with tmj. good luck.
