If someone here who has used <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>z</span>ithromycin to battle Lyme <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd Bart could help comfort me in my decision to continue with the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>z</span>ithromycin therapy that would be great. Below are my concerns: I am still confused as to whether or not I am experiencing adverse drug effects or a 'herx.' It is difficult to know because this disease has literally affected every tissue in my body. However, there are a couple things that make me suspicious of a drug allergy/adverse effect. 1.

It is scary to have the dizziness. I'm 41 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd I have slightly elevated <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pressure</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd live a quite stressful life at times. I went to the doctors again today and they are putting me on atenolol for preventing migraines and also if it is linked to highblood pressure. (the top number of my blood pressure has never been higher than in the 130's, but today it was 156/???
Most folks here think it is something in the environment like all the dust that is covering everything that is causing my symptoms. Every morning, I blow my nose <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd there is alot of brown <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd dried <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> in it. after I shower, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd blow again, there are smaller spots. after that it stays fairly clear until the next morning. The headache or pressure in my head is constant; however, is not really painful.
I then went to a more progressive ENT in 2005 who did an ethmoidectomy (removed the sinuses from between my eyes)<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd I really thought my problems were over. My pain <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pressure</span> were completely gone <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd I felt great. Until.....the beginning of the year I started having sinus infection problems with dizzyness and feeling totally lousey. a week and a half ago I was on my 3rd sinus infection when I finally went to a friend who is a Nurse Practitioner and had her culture my sinuses.
I take Metoprolol Succ ER 50 MG a day. I sometimes suffer Panic attacks and take Lorazapam .5 MG I suffer PVCS &amp; Panic Related blood pressure.

The next morning I took 1 zithro along with my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pressure</span> meds chlorthalidone shortly thereafter my heart rate was 113 but no other problems I called my dr he told me try and relax later that night heart rate went to normal visited my new dr did blood wk everything normal except thyroid overactive wondering if the meds the steroid,zpack,and blood press meds could have caused this reaction
and this is with an aspirin a day. I wonder now what. My cholesterol <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pressure</span> are fine (with medication). My doctor seems uncertain about what now and had no particular suggestions. So, if your're going to get one of these tests I suggest that you learn what the next steps are if it comes back high, especially if things otherwise seem ok.
I would be happy w/ these result, except yesterday evening- six days post the event- my bladder started to feel like there was <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pressure</span> on it <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd a frequent need to urinate. This ordeal, however, has caused me a great deal of stress because I'm usually not one to take sexual risks and I do wonder if my symptoms are psychosomatic or the result of drinking a lot of water to make myself urinate- given the results of tests came out negative- or if I actually have an NGU infection.
I became concered about STD's and had a stange feeling in my uretra and what seems to be my uterers <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pressure</span> in my kidneys. 5 to 6 days after exposure I was tested at a STD clinic for gonnorea, chlamidya etc and all came back negative. The doctor also gave me 1 dose of azithromyacin, just in case. after the azithro all symptoms dissapeared for about a week, and after that sypmtoms came back, a dull urethral pain, but no discharge. Pain was mainly near the tip and NOT during urination.
I have taken prilosec on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd off for 17 years. I have never had high <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pressure</span> withit. Palpitations is a side effect of zantac and I have that problem when I'm taken zantac. I've never had any problems with the prilosce though. My prilosec has been doubled to 40 mg also. So??? Can't help with that question. Everyone reacts differently to different meds. I've taken prilosec and zantac for years. acid reflux got really bad and switdhed to prevacid. Began itching a few days after taking. So...

Often my brain feels like it’s shaking inside my skull, odd as it sounds, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd I feel like my head is pounding, as if I am suddenly VERY aware of the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> pumping through my head. This is usually the worst when I am relaxing or about to sleep. Sometimes I wake up suddenly and feel like my body is trembling but it’s not. It’s quite scary, not painful, just disconcerting.

I used very little <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd had days I didn't take any but with my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pressure</span> headache <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd loss of appetite, although I can eat because i know i need to, and slight spaciness maybe dizziness its what she i mean we decided was safe.

Have been suffering from dizziness, nausea, one-sided facial <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pressure</span>, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pressure</span> on back of skull <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd occasional diarrhea <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd stomach upset since July 2007. Had thyroidectomy in September, saw GI doctor for intestinal problems after that; had upper and lower endoscopy done, which came back normal. Was put on Clidinium for the stomach problems, and they seemed to subside, but just came back recently. Started taking Clidinium again today.
Levofloxacin (Levaquin) is excellent treatment against both gonorrhea and chlamydia--not the first choice, but that's only because it is much more expensive than single-dose treatment with the recommended drugs, cefixime, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>z</span>ithromycin, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd a couple others. Yes, within a few days that treatment would make any test for those infections negative.
IGM: 39 IND, 41++, 45+, 58+ <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd on IGG I had 39 IND <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd 41+.

Just like many of you, I went to the doctor about three weeks ago and the first thing she said also was Herpes.She took a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> test <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd a normal pap <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd I still haven't received any results yet.at first I was pretty sure it was going to end up being Herpes but when I read the first comment posted and it sounded identical to mine, that made me feel a lot better.
I would say it's possible I imagined it all (with no discharge or elevated WBCs in urine) but the confirmed swollen lymph node, red <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> in the urine <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd marked dysuria (<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd let's not forget the pink eye) would seem to indicate that at least originally something was there. Now it's a wait and see game. I hate this part.
another thing that has been odd lately is that my blood pressure has been elevated a bit the last two times I have had it taken. My <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pressure</span> has always been excellent, but this last two times (about three weeks ago <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd then again 2 weeks ago) I had an upper number of 140.
I mention this because I initially thought that I'd made the tear(s) - because I suspected at that point there were internal tears since I was still bleeding <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd quite sore - worse with so much <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pressure</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd pulling <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd sweat in the cuts. I went to the store and bought diaper rash cream to soothe the cut on the outside of my labia. Gradually, the pain got worse and worse and it become more uncomfortable to sit down.
I noticed a couple of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> spots on my uvula <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd next to it when the throat irritation started to clear. I thought excessive heating was the cause 5)Week 6 HIV test negative. abdominal CT at week six an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>doesan>n’t show anything abnormal; pain still present Questions: 1) Given my symptoms, what do you think of the 6 week result? Repeat at 8 weeks? 2) I'm also getting slight tingling in my legs/groin. I had a day where my hips were "burning" when I was laying on my side.
