Common Questions and Answers about Levaquin and stomach pain

levaquin

I was on levaquin a couple years ago, it made me very sick to my stomach and gave me some joint pain. I didn't realize until after I took it that it can damage tendons and I read it can also cause hernias. I would never take it again. That's just my opinion, I would also ask for something else.
I have taken Levaquin before and nothing happened I need to take it again, should I be scared trying it again?
I only took 2 pills because I had horrible side effects and went to the ER for bloody diaherria, blood clots in my stool and the worst stomach cramps and pain in my life. Needless to say I didn't take that awful med again however a week after being off of it (the blood in the stool went away) I developed some type of joint and muscle pain and a sever debilitating headache that has lasted for 2 weeks.
I took 750 mg of Levaquin for 5 days for a respiratory infection and have been sick ever since. I have pain 24/7. I advise everyone to tell everyone they know to refuse this drug. I have MS and I was making progress prior to taking this medication. I feel as though I have taken 20 steps back since I took this medication. I have read that it can cause brain damage. My MS is concentrated in my brain, long term what should I expect.
Dr, Searched and could not find an appropriate answer. I am the true worry wart and even though based upon your posts my worries should be little, I can't stop worrying. Event: One time session with with massage parlor lady with some fellatio leading to intercourse to completion. Was too drunk to know if she put a condom on me. Could go back and ask but don't know if I would believe her or not regardless of answer or if I could even recognize her due to my drunken stupor.
Hello everyone! I'm new to this site and to Lyme. I've been doing so well on Levaquin for 30 days. Infact, I've been feeling great! Last week, I began having pain in joints and neck. I know Levaquin can cause this, but so can Lyme. I'm not sure if I should stop taking the Levaquin now, wait and call my doctor on Monday, or try something else first? My doctor is not a Lyme doctor.

The doctor told me to take 4x200mg Motrin twice daily, and that didn't even begin to touch the pain at all. I went on an antibiotic, and it kept feeling worse and worse until about the third or fourth day, when the pain suddenly started to get better. The pain was gone after about a week (except when I run or do a lot of hard physical activity).
He prescribed, nexium, an antibiotic called hyoscyamine, and levaquin. To make a long story short, my stomach still bothers me after taking the medicine. I also have excessive gas. Does having the hep mean that this problem is incurable? Is the infection going to stay there because of the hep? I know antibiotics are useless against viral infections. Has anyone else had this same stomach problem? Did you solve it? If so, how? I am scared.
99 percent of birth control pills have lactose as an ingredient) Almost immediately, I started to feel nauseas, stomach cramping, diarrhea and a stomach distention that was unreal. I've also put on a few pounds, and I'm a healthy eater for the most part. To make a long story short, my boyfriend suggested that it might be the birth control. The day I got off, I felt so much better, but there was still something not quite right.
I am so sick of going to all the GI offices and the hospital who keep telling us that nothing is wrong with her and that she has a small Hiatal Hernia that has nothing to do with her burning sensation and her stabbing right above the stomach and her nausea. A couple of days ago my wife was admited to the hospital for burning stomach and nausea and sure enough they found nothing.
I eventually went to the er and was admitted. A colonoscopy was performed and the GI dr came back and told me that I had Ischemic Colitis. A couple of days later another GI dr came in and stated that there was no way that I could have Ischemic Colitis that I just did not fit the profile. Apparently there is something going on with my colon but no one can seem to agree to anything. They put me on Flagyl, Levaquin, Phenghan, Percocet, along with other things.
severe constipation, severe gas pressure on my left side, pain in my penis and bladder, pain in my penis when urinating, urgency, a tight scrotum with ultra-sensitive "burning" skin, and an occassional rash on my hands, feet and abdomen. The clinic doctor did not think that any of this was related to my initial injury and told me to go see my personal doctor, which I did. As a result, I ended up having two ultrasounds (one from the clinic and one from my personal doctor).

I went to the doctor 10 days ago and he put me on medication for diverticulitis for ten days (Levaquin and Dicyclomine). Well the ten day period is up and i still feel that uncomfortableness, does anyone have similar symptoms or know what this could be. I have changed my diet since seeing the doctor, making sure to ttake it much more fiber and i have also started taking metamucil. Me symptoms are: * Ache in right side, underneath bottom part of ribcage, tingles when touched.
I been told by My Gastro Doctor although they found Diverticula pouches inside My Colon and Intestional Track, the pain I feel on My Left and Right side is not Diverticulitis because when He pushes down on My Stomach in these area's I do not feel the pain. I had a Colonoscopy done not long ago about 3 years and found a few Diverticula Pouches, one in My Intestional Track on My Right side and a couple over on My Left. I've had pain off and on in these exact places.
By Friday I had a tinngeling (sp) sensation on my penis, inner thighs, and my stomach. This has been the same symptoms since then and today is Tuesday June 27th. I went to my Dr yesterday, and he stated it was extremely unlikely to have herpes and the symptoms be what they are so quickly. I still do not have any sores or even redness. Dr prescribed Levaquin 500mg a day for 7 days, and Azithromycin 500MG 1 pill total.
I have told the urologist that this pain is real and it is primarily associated with my urethra and the opening. I have no pain in my pelvic area, I never have. He keeps telling me that it could be referred pain however from the prostate. I have no idea what a KUB is but at 25 do you think cancer or stones are possible? At this point Im willing to explore any other possibilities. I am to the point where a THIRD opinion from a urologist may be needed.
My stomach hurt off and on for about a week or so. The pain was in the top and more all over in the stomach - not at all localized int eh right side. The only reason I went to the docs was to get an excuse for work. I'm glad I did. My WBC were very high and they did an ultrasound and said I had an appendicitis. I went straight to the hospital. Hung around a while went for another ultrasound and they said I was fine, but I was already admitted and they kept me.
First I had something which caused my throat to burn like fire for about a week, then I had stomach pain and bloody diahrea for another week. I was diagnosed with fissures. About a week after this resolved, my left had started swelling up. It got as big as a small orange right on top where the middle nuckle is located and also my middle finger. Then the pain started. It was really severe pain. I went to my family doc,, who prescribed a course of predinsone.

I went in to my new doctor the next day (the pain had already started to go away before I saw him) and he called it epididymitis as well. He perscribed Levaquin for a week and I felt fine after that. I ended up traveling to Ecuador and became ill with some sort of food poisoning during the last 2 or 3 days of my antibiotics cycle. The food poisoning passed I thought and I had sex with my girlfriend.
First it is entirely possible to get afib via gas bloat and other stomach and digestive tract disorders. If your stomach and digestive tract is as described then you must have inflamation. All this inflamation and bloat and gas will push up on your diaphram and surrounding areas and cause great discomfort and pain but also can press upon nerves.

I was treated with Flagyl and Levaquin and the pain went away. About a month ago I began to have pain in the upper left quadrant right under my rib. I ate a lot of fiber to flush my system but the pain remained so my doctor put me on Flagyl and Levaquin for 10 days. It did not do anything. I went to the ER and they did another abdomen and pelvis CT scan and found nothing except a small cyst in my left kidney. That was also there in July.
On 02/01/10, my right testicle raised high into the groin and a sharp pain shot through my right groin and lower abdomen (below my belly button). Since this occurred at work, I went to the designated work clinic. First guess by the doctor was either a pulled groin or a hernia. I was put on restricted duty (I am a baggage handler) until I could get an ultrasound to confirm a hernia.
