Stiff neck, without fever, headache, etc, simply is not a symptom of any infection and certainly not of meningitis. (Nobody gets meningitis due to any cause without fever, bad headache, headache, and feeling horribly ill.) Neck pain, back pain, etc generally is caused by muscle spasm and undoubtedly happens to tens of thousands of people each day in the US, and a several thousand each day catch chlamydia, and a hundred times that number have new sex during any one week.
In the meantime I''m reading about FLOXING SYNDROME - the toxic adverse effects of taking fluoroquinolones - a class of antibiotics. I took the drug ciprofloxacin a few years ago and wonder if they may have caused my brain explosions and the loud noises. Also, I wonder if there is a connection between the Methylprednisolone I took for my ear congestion problem and the brain zaps I received around that time.
So there is that connection again between the immune system and flare ups of MS Now ciprofloxacin is an all-purpose antibiotic and the word hasn't yet gotten out. So I tend to see a lot of patients whose MS begins when they're being prescribed something like Cipro. Is this true for the other floxacins? There are cousins of Cipro that are available, there's oxfloxacin and levofloxacin. We're not sure yet, but if I had MS I'd avoid any drug that had the word floxacin in it.
How much time passed after your symptoms began in 2000 until when you were treated with flagyl and ciprofloxacin? What dosage and treatment regimen did you complete (how much flagyl for how long)? Did you undergo multiple rounds of flagyl? You stated in your posting that for the last three years you have had profuse watery diarrhea. Does that mean that from ~ 2000-2005 that you did not have significant symptoms?
It started on the right side of my stomach and felt like really bad sunburn and my shirt hurt my skin really bad when I put it on. It then went to my whole back, went away from there and showed up on my right inner bicep, then to my right outer forearm and now on my left inner and mid-thigh for 2 days and now still on my thigh but also on my left forearm. It is extremely painful on my thigh when I walk and my pants rub up against it. I am 32 years old, with two healthy boys and am married.
Hi Everyone. This is my first post. I started having problems about 5 years ago. It was occasional problems such as mild sinus pain/pressure and headache with mild eye strain. Each year it has gotten worse. Over the course of the past 5 years I have seen multiple doctors across different specialites: Ears, Nose & Throat, Neurologist, Allergist, and my Intern. I have had MRI's and CT scans. This year has been the worst so far. I have already gotten 2 sinus infections.
Unfortunately, that did not last. I started having the same signs again, and when I tested it was positive again. And ever since I can't get it to be negative again, meaning the candida if that is what I have has become resistant to the supplements that I was using. As I started a new treatment, I will take the test this week-end to see if there is any progress.
