Avatar m tn I've taken cipro from 7-14 days and even IV cipro for an infection. can you get a terrible lung infection and worsening of asthma?
443434 tn?1255894833 I was given Cipro for a simple UTI, I was 36 years old. I was dizzy for three and half weeks, vertigo, nausea, then the ear pressure, spots in left eye, flashes in left eye, short term memory loss, horrible dreams, weak wrists and knees, massive floaters headaches, ears ringing, dry eyes, itching all over, rashes, insomnia, dark spots in left eye, eye pain, blurred vision, sensitive to sound, vitreous detachment happened in left eye and now happening with the right eye.
Avatar m tn I am 26 year old male and was given cipro for a Staph infection 500MG/2X'S per day for 10 days. On the 7th day of taking the medication, I had extreme difficulty breathing, tightness in my chest and immediately got off (okayed by my doctor). It has now been 7 days since I have been off the meds and I am still having difficulty breathing, can not take a full yawn and my left heal is in minor pain.
Avatar n tn I agree that you really need to see your doctor. Write a list of questions to ask your doctor, so you won't forget, when you see him or her. Here are some questions you might want to ask (among others): 1) Some antibiotics can cause nerve damage (as a bad side effect), resulting in pins & needles, numbness, etc. For example, Cipro can cause "peripheral neuropathy". What possible side effects did the antibiotic you took have?
Avatar f tn I was seen by a doctor who diagnosed me as having a kidney infection based on my back pain and high white blood cell count. I was given cipro for 7 days. As the week progressed the pain in my rib cage remained and progressed as well as tenderness in the entire left rib cage. I went to er where they did ct searching for kidney stones. They instead found a 1.2 noncalcified nodule of left lung. I was sent to a pulmonoligist who preformed a repeat ct scan. The scan found the 1.2 nodule.
Avatar f tn Anyway, good that he is seeing a specialist for the lung. Any good doctor can take an Xray and see if there is pneumonia on the lung. Pleuracy hurts when you breath in and it feels like very sharp stabbing pain usually in the ribs not in the lung area. It may be bronchitis. This would be a secondary infection.
Avatar m tn yes having fever, what tests and treatment plan can be asked doctor for infection and lung concern. will go after x ray of sinus- will plan for tommorrow- I am planning to consult another family doctor in next 3-4 days.
Avatar n tn Hi.  I definitely have allergies (cats/ragweed) and asthma.  Two years ago in August, I was sick, vomiting I was so ill.  Twice, two weeks apart.  From that point on fatigue never left me.  Several months later, in February, I came down with a horrible upper respiratory infection at the same time I was exposed to a huge dose of animal protein and a very unsanitary condition filled with unimaginable filth.  I've never lost my voice before, but this time, I could hardly squeak out a word.
Avatar n tn He has been given one round of predisnone and one round of Cipro for possible infection. The cough remains and will not go away. Is it possible that there is lung met that has not shown up on any ct scans? He does have history of allergies and asthma but with his RCC history, every cough worries me. Thank you for taking the time to respond.
Avatar m tn Finally my family doctor sent me to a lung specialist and he told me I had a mycoplasma infection. I was on antibiotics for 2-3 weeks and I felt much better. Needless to say that has not been the end of it and I've never been the same since. I don't know if the long term mycoplasma infection did damage but anytime I get a cold or flu my body can't fight it off and I end up on a 2 week course of Biaxin (minimum). I met another older lady in a hospital clinic and we started talking.
242516 tn?1368227505 If your doctor is worried that you might have pneumonia, a chest x-ray can look to see if there's an infection, especially for those who have coughed for more than 3 weeks. With a viral bronchitis, you should avoid antibiotics especially zpacks (Zithromax / azithromycin) which are overprescribed for these symptoms , and can lead to side effects and adverse drug reaction such as rash, antibiotic drug resistance and yeast infections.
612876 tn?1355518095 ear infection. So now I'm on Cipro and steroid drops for that, and even if I could have considered traveling home for the services before, now it's out of the picture. I feel cruddy, I guess because my body is fighting the infection ... it's definitely upping the whole dizziness issue. As for the rest of this week, I just want to stay in my "cave" and hope nothing goes wrong.
Avatar f tn 20, however, he presented with a high -- 104-degree -- fever, chills, and his chest began hurting. I had Cipro -- for recurrent sinus infections that sometimes progress rapidly to pneumonia -- and he took that for 15 days. During the interim he had to move 25 bales of hay from one barn to another, which I recommended that he not do but which he did anyway. He also did a lot of field brush-hogging prior to getting this infection.
Avatar n tn Has anyone out there been this sick throughout the Rx? Sinus infection since November 5 1/2 months,and Bronchitis for the past 8 weeks. I am allergic to Penicillin, of course!, and going for an ultrasound of sinuses today. I am scared that I will have to stop this Rx this far into it. My Interferon was reduced to 135 mg 3 weeks ago because my white cell count was 150. I made it through the 1/2 way mark and that 1st "test" and I cannot fathom starting again.
Avatar f tn I was checked just last week and was clear for bladder infection. so I m thinking yeast infection,. Been on cipro. But yeast medicine not helping and it feels to swollen to use applicator for yeast treatment. Extremely painful. I can't even get the applicator in. I am through with breast cancer treatment. Finished in October 2006. Finished radiation January 2007. Been on tamoxefin. I am a two year survivor of Invasive Ductal Carcinoma Stage IIIA. someone please help me out here.
Avatar n tn I used to have this excess phlegn problem following a 10 day regimen of antibiotics for a sinus infection, however, after a couple of weeks it would go away, until about 5 yrs ago, when, it decided to call my body home. I think for some of us, a regular 10 day regimen of antibiotics cures the primary problem, but does not completely get rid of all of it, thus, we are left with this lovely coughing till we puke to try to get out the nasty phlegm to no avail.
242516 tn?1368227505 Physicians should advise patients, at the first sign of tendon pain, swelling, or inflammation, to stop taking the fluoroquinolone, to avoid exercise and use of the affected area, and to promptly contact their doctor about changing to a non-fluoroquinolone antimicrobial drug. Selection of a fluoroquinolone for the treatment or prevention of an infection should be limited to those conditions that are proven or strongly suspected to be caused by bacteria.
Avatar n tn That may have made me feel the best, although I credit Levaquin for clearing up the infection in the flesh in my nose. Doxycycline just made me feel healthy, and gave me endurance. A couple of weeks ago, a UTI, and with bravery, I faced another dreaded doctor's visit. The nurse asked me how I had gone shopping when I had a UTI. I said compared to how I've felt in the last two years, this is nothing. Seven days of Cipro. Again, I felt better still.
Avatar n tn Years ago I made the mistake on insisting on taking Levaquin for a persistant lung infection. It cured the infection, but the muscle and joint pain continued for eight months. Curiously, I can toerate Cipro with no problems. The FDA has a lot of info on their site regarding Levaquin. There a large degree of risk with this medication, although it is inarguably very effective with certain types of bacterial infections.
Avatar n tn It is not numb, it does not tingle, and it does not burn. He has a lung infection and has been taking medicine for that for about a week. He has recently changed his diet for his cholesteral. I wonder if this is a result of new medicine, changing his diet, or could it just be over doing it. I'm also wondering what questions could he ask his doctor on tuesday. I thank you for your time.
Avatar n tn Z-pack and Cipro are both antibiotics. Has you tested positive for a bacterial infection? Your doctor may be doing a trial abx treatment, in lieu of testing for a Pathogenic Mycoplasma infection, which most labs cannot detect. Pathogenic Mycoplasma may be an underlying causative factor in the pathognesis of scleroderma. At this point testing wouldn't be warranted to pursue an infectious condition diagnosis, since you have already been on the z-pack, so any lab results would not be accurate.
Avatar n tn My mother-in-law had been sick for at least 3-4 weeks. S&S cough, weakness, SOB, fever. She has been on different antibotics(cipro,zpack). She finally goes to the ER WBC's 44,000. Spo2 88%. While in the hospital they said her right lung on xray is 75% full with fluid, they performed an ultrasound guided thoracentesis, drained 250ml. They also thought she had a lung abcess. Tomorrow she goes to surgery for a thorascopy.
Avatar m tn There are several of us on here who have a similar eye complaint: seeing a bright flash, like the afterimage of a flash bulb, when we blink, and sometimes, on upgaze. This is transient symptom for most of us, lasting anywhere from a few days to a few weeks. When the "spot" in our visual field passes over a dark background, the spot appears light. When the spot passes over a light background, it appears dark.
Avatar f tn Also on a side note, I was treated for a lung infection with cipro orally for two weeks, zithromax for 5 days and I received zosyn thru IV infusion for two weeks. Would any of those medications cause these symptoms? Also do any STDs cause muscle burning pains in the thighs? Thanks for you help.
Avatar f tn in your and any ones case test your self with long specialist for lung cistyse fibrosis as thei cause lung infections and polyps together with pseudomonas bacterie..only adequate ventilation+antibiotics can remove theis bacterie from body,nothing case of lung cistyse fibrisys =sorry no cure...
2100204 tn?1334813053 The doctor said wbc's high but not sure infection was there. Urine looked clear. He prescribed Cipro and another med that helped burning w urination. On second day of dosage, I began to feel like I was losing my breath. Had trouble getting air. The next day seemed better. On third day, trouble breathing again. I cannot get enough air, yawning alot. I think I'm dying. :( ...April 03, 2012 Just to update. My breathing problem has seemed to dissipate suddenly. I had no breathing issue all day.
Avatar m tn Often a bacterial infection is followed by a mycobacterial infection (bacteria without cell walls) , which are resistant to most antibiotics except the fluoroquinalones, such as Cipro. There are many antibiotic resistant strains of bacteria around these days. Ask your doctor for an opinion when you see him.
Avatar m tn I currently have severe COPD. Previous smoker with history of PE and pneumonia. CT scans (3) in 2012 showed some small lymph node action which did not grow any larger. Recently I went to emergency room with pain in left lung when breathing. Assummed pneumonia since I had a vena cava filter installed after multiple PE found in 2010.
