Antibiotics cause headaches

Common Questions and Answers about Antibiotics cause headaches


Avatar m tn Hi, Thanks for writing in. Your symptoms are very suggestive of sinusitis. Sinusitis can cause pain in the temples, pain on coughing, and tenderness behind the eyes. I would suggest you to take steam inhalation few times a day and see if it helps. You can also take OTC pain killers and decongestants. If your symptoms improve, please continue with the same. However if symptoms persist you may need to get yourself evaluated by your PCP as you may need a course of antibiotics. Take care!
Avatar f tn Headaches can be divided into primary and secondary. Primary headache disorders are headaches without a direct cause. Secondary headache disorders are due to an underlying problem, such as a tumor, medication side effects, central nervous system infections, clots in the veins in the brain etc. An MRI of the brain excludes many of the latter. However, there are certain secondary causes of headaches that i will discuss below.
Avatar n tn After 6 months of watching diet for diagnosis of Type 2 Diabetes, I started taking Meformin. Right before I started taking Metformin, headaches began.
1361724 tn?1277669957 If you do have sleep apnea, your oxygen levels could be dropping too low at night, which can cause the headaches, dizziness, confusion, etc. If you are diagnosed with it, you may need to use the CPAP machine or extra oxygen at night. Do you snore? Has anyone ever said that you stop breathing while asleep?
511778 tn?1222826885 Is anybody else getting headaches? I've never really had headaches at any time during this pregnancy and rarely got them in the past before getting pregnant.Now at 14 weeks I"ve had them for almost a week now! I finally broke down and took a Tylonel tonight but it didn't seem to help. Not sure why this is happening all of a sudden. - Especially because I never got them in the past! I'm making sure to drink plenty of water so I know I"m not dehydrated.
Avatar f tn Stomach cramps with antibiotics are not uncommon (the antibiotics make the muscles of the intestine move more quickly, and can cause loose stool as well). However, fever and itching can be a sign of an allergy. It is possible to develop an allergy at any time in your life, even to an antibiotic you have taken before. I hope this helps.
Avatar n tn It is known that Flu, sinus and other types of infections that require antibiotics are sometimes the cause of some type of stress already excistant in your life. There is a book i have just brought and i cannot wait to read it is called "Deadly Emotions" it is about your emotions causing your body to become sick, lowering your immune system and thus allowing all types of nasty things to hurt you.
Avatar f tn I would stop all antibiotics and if your GI symptoms did not resolve in a day or two, I’d look for another, possibly more serious cause for these symptoms. Rifampin has been known to cause liver, renal and pancreatic problems, though not commonly. Semen is usually sterile and represents fluids from your testis, epididymis, vas deferens, prostate and urethra. Therefore, let us not only give attention to your prostate. I would want to know about your urine culture also.
Avatar f tn i had sinus x-rays which showed some sinus thickening and my allergies are under control and i have been on antibiotics for ten days and no improvement.i also have scalp tenderness and sharp shooting pais all over my head. i also have this extreme tired feeling behind my eyes.any suggestions?
Avatar n tn A week later I detected some discharge from my penis and went to a walk-in clinic and gave a urine sample for STD's plus blood work. The doctor gave me some antibiotics for the penile discharge as well. Everything came back negative and the dischage stopped in a few day's. About 4 weeks after that I had unprotected oral sex performed on me by a street worker...about a day later I had a bad headache then another day later I had more discharge...this time worse than before.
Avatar m tn At 11 weeks I got what looks like hives and I had unprotected sex with my wife two weeks ago and now she is achey and has had headaches that she dosent normally have. Today I broke out with a rash with small red raised bumps. I am really am scared Dr. Jose, My question is, are my negative tests conclusive even though my hiv/pcr rna test was negative at 8 weeks, and hiv test negative at around 10 or 11 weeks?
Avatar n tn is not an indication for antibiotics, unless an infection is diagnosed, and an infection is an unlikely cause of such symptoms in men. And non-STD urinary tract infections are rare in men, especially under agoe 40 or so. Was this self-treatment or prescribed? If the latter, what did your examination and testing show? But perhaps all that is beside the point. Regardless of the reason for taking ciprofloxacin, there is no point in getting tested for STDs at this time.
Avatar f tn Hi all, I have SVT and going to see a university of Penn doctor on Wednesday about an ablation. I also have skipped beats, pauses, all the annoying stuff that freaks me out sometimes. Heart issues run on both sides of my family, my dad has afib. I'm 43 and have had tachycardia since my late 20s. Here's my problem. I am fighting a pretty severe infection, first it was upper respiratory and was given amoxicillian. 6 days later, I am running fevers and having bad head aches.
Avatar f tn Hi, my ten yeor old son has suffered from migraine type headaches that the doctors have told me are sinus induced. An MRI several years ago showed a severe sinus infection that he had to take antibiotics for 30 days. He gets these 2-3 times a week sometimes. Could removing his tonsils improve his headaches? Is there a connection? He's only had strep once in his life. If anyone could help me, i'd appreciate it!
Avatar n tn I remember reading a post a while back saying antibiotics were also bad for liver... Reason i ask is i had a toothace dentist prescribed antibiotics i told him make sure there liver friendly he said all antibiotics are.. then i got swimmers ear while vacationing and went to ear doc and she said same thing .Does anyone know of a site that discusses that i trid janis no luck Thanks ..
Avatar m tn Based on the symptoms below, is there a specialized doctor or test I should take to determine the cause. Could these symptoms be an early warning for stroke conditions ? Have experienced chronic headaches over the last year. Not sure what is causing them. - initally treated as a sinus infection (I have seasonal allergies) with antibiotics. That did not correct the aches.
Avatar n tn I am trying to figure out how to get rid of these headaches. Now on top of these headaches I have ringing in my ears. I have been diagnosed with Hypothyroid and have been taking synthroid for 2 years. My headaches have been located on the side of my head and sometimes on the top and back of the head. I was wondering if this is due to a blood issue such as clots or something? Can someone put some incite on the situation?
Avatar f tn MRI's showed increased gray matter. Headaches lessoned for for a couple months, then started back even worse than before. I have ringing in my ears,, ear pressure, forgetfulness, ear pain, head pain, nausea, dizziness, constant headache (sometimes duller than others but always there), and serious pain from noise and light.I had another MRI done and the results say, "Deep white matter T2 changes primarily bilateral frontal area question related to vascular headache.
Avatar f tn Yeah, withdrawal from the nicotine can definitely can cause headaches. However, as Selma suggested, I'd recommend seeing an ENT to see if you have a sinus infection, and if so, get treatment for it. You can try getting some Mucinex, which is just an expectorant, and see if that helps with your sinus pressure.
Avatar n tn He said there would need to have surgery for this which I said Ok hopefully thats the issue but I have been experiencing headaches in the back of my head and upper neck while sometimes they show up at the top of my head. The headaches arent severe to the point where I am in pain but I do feel them. I am fearing the worst that it could be cancer or a tumor. I havent vomited broke a fever or anything. any input would be great thanks.
203342 tn?1328740807 So does this sound like a tension headache then rather than sinus? So what would cause the tension headaches and why does it seem like it's in my sinuses? I don't know what to think anymore! At least this doctor decided to look into this more than the last one. I guess I'll find out, I hope!
Avatar f tn I am thankful i found this forum, and i have been reading about cerebral spinal fluid leakage. What i was wanting to ask is, my boyfriend has chronic debilitating headaches about the first of the month every month putting him down for 3 continuous days. He says it hurts behind his eyes, and at the neck area. He has some nasal dripping that is clear and just drips out of his nose. He has had several MRI and went to several doctors and they seem to not be able to figure out what the problem is.
724811 tn?1291434386 It is often advised that over-the-counter analgesics should be avoided since they are usually not very effective and can cause rebound headaches. So instead of treating a headache with an over-the-counter analgesic, please talk to your doctor about prescription for a suitable medication first. The antiemetic Metoclopramide can also be prescribed even if no nausea or vomiting is involved because as well as being an antiemetic, it also helps to treat pain.
Avatar n tn More tests, more meds, doctors telling me I've always had headaches, they were sinus headaches, that the cyst wasn't causing the headaches. Migraines were coming 3-4 times a week - lasting 6 hours or more, I was taking way lots of drugs and not functioning well. Saw a surgeon at Barrows Neurosurgical in Phoenix (where I live) and she said we should rule out all other possibilities, try different meds. Of course good advice- no one wants a craniotomy right?
988694 tn?1332363079 I decided to stop almond milk and almond/cocoa spread on Sunday and give it a try and see if it the cause of my problems. I am currently taking antibiotics because of the pain on my sinus. It has been two days and I am still suffering headaches and post nasal drip, and sneezing. I had yesterday a granola bar with some peanuts and today a mini sneaker. Do you think my mild allergy to almonds and cashews could be the cause of my respiratory problems? any one with similar experience?
Avatar n tn I haven't found any oral contraceptives to be of much benefit, though they cause no harm either. Antibiotics are standard dermatologic therapy for acne. Used properly, thy do not, even after long-term use, cause weakening of the immune system or susceptibility to infections. Eryhtromycin is particularly innocuous. (The heartbeat issue concerns only joint use with nonsedating antihistamines.) Having red marks which might scar all over the face is not a trivial matter.
Avatar m tn What if the antibiotics dosnt work?
Avatar n tn Now for the yeast infections with antibiotics - this happens because the antibiotics have killed off so many of the bad bacteria and they start attacking the similar good bacteria that control the yeast population "down south." so then the yeast over grow and you're left in misery - i know it sucks, and it happens every time i take ANY antibiotic that isn't for a UTI. Penicillin, Biaxin, Augmentin, you name it - if i have to take it for more than 7 days i'll get a yeast infection.
Avatar n tn She is on the pill but has been on strong antibiotics 500mg (amoxicillin) for about 2 weeks. How safe do you think we are in regards to pregnancy?
