Common Questions and Answers about Antibiotics for flu like symptoms

antibiotics

You need to seek the help of a doctor. However, these symptoms don't necessarily sound like the flu to me at all. It could be a million things...with migraine headaches, you can have nausea, etc. With a stomach bug, you can have loose stools...With reflux, you could have the burping issue plus nausea. Lots of things to consider, so I would seek the advice of a professional.
I am now slightly fatigued with strange aches I have never felt before such as a pain on the sides of my right calf that happened only twice for about 1 min each and now moving slight joint/muscle pains that are very weak but present. It is like very weak flu-like symptoms. I was wondering if early hiv always shows strong flu like symptoms or if these weak symptoms could indicate something. I was around someone who was on antibiotics for strep a few days ago.
4 months ago I had an acute episode of flu-like symptoms (low grade fever, chills, night sweats, daily sweating, headache, severe fatigue, dry cough). This was the most severe symtpoms I have ever had, to the point where I was unable to work. About a week later I saw an emergency room doctor who did a CXR (normal) and bllod work. My White blood cells were down to 2.4. He said that all this looks like a viral infection and wait it out.
Everything I've experienced including this new flu-like rage are symptoms that I have experience on a continual 3-4 (or so, my journaling has been pretty bad) week cycle since my transfusion a year ago. The cycles of symptom flare ups got more and more intense on their own over the year and then with the doxy I am pretty much useless. I don't know if it was a natural progression or if it was magnified by the doxy, but my goodness it's extreme!
Drink plenty of hot fluids like tea, soups, warm lemonade. If symptoms persist consult your PCP. Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
I'm 14 weeks pregnant and have flu like symptoms. I have body aches a headache chills cough and sore throat I don't have health insurance until next Tuesday but I'm concerned for the baby with me being sick. Is the baby going to be okay? I'm trying to stay hydrated and rest...
Hi Linda, I am a newbie as well, I think if I remember from an earlier post of yours that we started around the same time. Flu like symptoms are one of the most common side effects. I had a sore throat and coughing the first two days. It is probably not ideal to get a cold while on treatment because the normal discomfort of a cold would probably be amplified, but my doctor nor any of the literature that came with my meds said anything about avoiding a cold.
it may happen once a year for a couple years then not show up for another couple years. Thanks for any help anyone may have!
I too have been experiencing cold/flu like symptoms after working out for the past like 10 years. It started at around age 32. Before that I was a workout addict and worked out every day with weights and cardio. Then I took a break for about a year due to depression and when I started working out again I started experiencing these symptoms. It seems like anytime I do any kind of heavy cardio where I break a good sweat I almost always get sick.
I read here that candidas could be caused by antibiotics use and does indeed sometimes cause flu like symptoms as well. Is that possible or likely? 3) I hate to even bring this up, but does my flu like symptoms and the addition of the itching and dry skin etc. sound anything like initial HIV issues? 5 weeks post encounter sounds like too much time, but want to get your opinion please? 4) I have been avoiding sex with my wife b/c I fear what I have may be herpes.
with these symptoms lightheadedness brainfog flu-like symtoms (especially after physical activity) very swollen tonsillitis (swollen for 6 months now) weird warm burning in my chest and throat (especially during/after activity) skin sensitivity high pulse/heart rate sensitivity to sound low grade fever insomnia Life was good before this disease took over my life, I was at the gym 4-5 days a week for years. But then this invincible disease got me, and it feels like it's killing me slowly.
I went to my local ER and they prescribed me Amoxicillin antibiotics. I began taking the antibiotics for several days and my symptoms still lingered. I've had blood work done, urine samples, and a CT scan done on my head, and they all came out normal.
I have a very similar situation--redness on head of penis appearing about 36 hours after sexual contact, accompanied by slighlty delayed flu-like symptoms (sans congestion or rhinitis). The redness/soreness on my glans and regional itchiness has persisted for about 10 weeks now, and is cyclical.
I too have EAR / glands and TERRIBLE neck pain and lower skull pain and I was on antibiotics for 3 weeks to no avail. Neck pain so bad I could touch my neck vein and it was so sore and I had pain shoot to my temples.. OMG!!!! ICE PACK helped thanks God but... next I spent hundreds of dollars at an ENT and Swallow study and CT scan of sinus and neck only for the ENT to say he has no answers and keep taking the Naproxen he gave me and check back in 2 months!?
For the last five weeks I have been experiencing flu-like symptoms that last most of the day, until early evening. When the flu-like symptoms end, they are replaced by hot flash-type symptoms. (I'm post menopausal). Before the surgery, I had hyperthyroidism - severe fatigue, nervousness, very dry and itchy skin, problems concentrating, very fast heart rate, plus heart beat very hard, so hadn't had a restful nights sleep in about 8 months.
My 13 yr old son has been home sick all week with flu like symptoms (Fever, vomitting, sore throat, headache and chills). We took him to his pediatrician and he said it was probably a virus that he would just have to live through although he prescribed antibiotics just in case he didn't get well by the end of the week. This alone doesn't really worry me however he has been sick A LOT off and on over the last 6 months with very similar symptoms each time. He's also missed a lot of school.
I have been suffering with flu-like symptoms since September 2007...I have had a few good days since but only a few. Once again, I am down with the symptoms of weakness, lightheadedness, low grade fevers (99-99.3), nauseous, body aches, slightly SOB. Also have severe sinus facial pain but CTScan of sinuses showed nothing...all clear. Pulmonologist said lungs were clear last week.... I am too sick, too often and not treated.
Thought it might be good for me to journal my symptoms throughout the day so I/we all can keep track. I am also listing (for me) what day I am in my cycle, this helps me some. So, day - 26 - feeling very tired, out of it, anxious, tingly, off balance, had head pressure this am but it went away. Hada headache earlier but took a bayer and it is gone. I have been feeling well but closer to my cycle and I get off. Will update in about an hour or so.
I took a full course of antibiotics, but I have flu like symptoms all the time. No fever, no bad discharge or anything that signals infection. Just flu-like symptoms. Has any one experienced this?
I started to feel extremely cold mainly in my upper body needing out door cloths inside the house and during the night often, felt very tired all day long, felt like I was fainting, but never did, at times felt my legs were so weak that I felt would fall down but never happened, wanted to go to bed during the day often, had funny sensations and pain in my knees that got inflamed under sun hit when in the beach, or walking with a child on my arms, had pain on my lower legs when exercising at th
I normally dont get flu like symptoms. Whats alarming is , I STARTED SHOWING SYMPTOMS EXACTLY 12 HOURS AFTER UNPROTECTED sex.... the symptoms allevated from day 1 to DAY 3, DAY 4...and then it subsided from DAY 5, 6... What could it be ? I went and told doc, and i am awaiting urine test.. he did not prescribe me blood test.. he also did a ultrasonogram of my testicle, uroflowmetry, xray of my lower abdomen.
I felt extremely unwell for a long time (with that low bs like feeling.) For me, none of my symptoms improved until my anxiety decreased. I used to think that I was relaxed but my doctor, etc would tell me that I was severely anxious. I use to have relative good immunity so possibly never got sick during this time. I do get hay fever though so not sure how this affected things. For me the anxiety connection seems to have made most sense.
whats the difference between regular flu symptoms and hiv flu like symptoms? is the HIV flu like symptoms much worse where you would need to see a doctor? how can the doctor tell the 2 apart?
I believe I have been experiencing severe panic attacks/ anxiety as a result of a combination of antibiotics I was on for an UTI. I have stopped the antibiotics, abou 36 hours ago, and am wondering how long before they are out of my system? and when they are out, will the anxiety go away? My GP prescribed a mild anti-anxiety drug and it has helped but not completely.. My heart is pounding and anytime I think of leaving the house I get sick to my stomach...
