8600220 tn?1398959274 If you have a high fever you should see your doctor. It could be bacteria food poisoning and the antibiotic they gave you may not be the correct one. If you have no fever then it may be just too much food too soon. Hope this helps.
Avatar n tn The multi-purpose antibiotic ciprofloxacin, used to combat germs behind food poisoning and bone and joint infections, is also affected. So is the cancer drug etoposide and a drug given to prevent the rejection of transplanted organs. Seems that you shouldn't drink these juices within 4 hours of taking the medicine.

233616 tn?1312790796 try goggling mercury poisoning. If his symptoms fit you could call your local lab and get it tested, as he could be given treatment if it is mercury to get some of it back out. I'd stay WAY away from any city dump area, especially now that they've added a new layer of mercury in the form of all those "energy saving" florescent bulbs, which contain mercury. For the other 10,000 things the fish could ingest in such an area as well, it's just not a good idea.
Avatar f tn food poisoning, a parasitic infection, irritable bowel syndrome, or more seriously Inflammatory Bowel Disease (Crohn's or Ulcerative Colitis). As we are are not doctors, we cannot identify the cause over the internet, neither can they, and all we can suggest is that you really need to see a doctor for blood and stool tests to determine the cause and get appropriate medication. Meantime, you should keep hydrated, drink lots of fluids and stay off solids until you get to a doctor.
Avatar n tn Upon starting , vomited within first week, i thought it was a 24 hour flu bug or food poisoning. -After a week off restarted workout program minus Whey protein powder. All was well for about 6 weeks, started up whey powder again and one week later i'm sick again but worse. Symptoms- Fever, vomiting, diarrhea. Aches on first day only. No cough, no sore throat, no visable blood in stool.Stool sample was taken and they didn't call back meaning no news is good news..
Avatar m tn There's also the possibility that you've got one heck of a case of food poisoning, which would affect both tracts, and the treatment should be a little different if that's the case. In any case, I don't know if you're seeing a regular family doc, but your next stop is a second opinion.

Avatar n tn Stress can without a doubt cause physical problems, but I've been diagnosed with stress related stomach ailments that it turns out are food allergies. Food sensitivities are tough to figure out. It takes patience and careful thought and bottomline your doctor can't dedicate the same time and energy to monitoring all your symptoms that you can. I'm definitely not being critical of doctors, but in my experience it was up to me to figure out the problem. Turns out it's lactose intolerance.
Avatar m tn I have had pretty much every test under the sun (HIV, MRIs, EMGs, EEGs, Sleep Studies, Western Blot, and the list goes on and on) and everything has come back normal except for 1 and I will go into that further down. Ok, so let's get on to my symptoms. At times I have this feeling of an inner tremor of sorts. It is real hard to explain to someone who hasn't felt it but I would correlate it to having an extreme feeling of a caffeine buzz.
Avatar n tn I am in constant pain and my leg has red spots on the aria of the knee replacement and is always wormer then the other leg. Now I have developed a severe allergy in my sinus, with the tubes plug and water on one ear. No one can tell me what I am allergic to. I read many people having the idea of allergies to titanium and I have read that the medical community say it not possible. The last two night I have had a temperature of 101, that comes and goes.
Avatar n tn I have taken Doxycline 100mg capsules for 10 days and I am currently taking Ciprofloxacin 500mg for 10 days and still no improvement. This is very fustrating... doesnt seem like there are many links out there to this specific type of problem. This is the first link that actually explains what I am going through. PLEASE let me know if you find anymore information on this. Or if anybody can help!?!?!
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar m tn In the new test Candida was in normal amount (10^3), only lactobacilli were much lower than normal, and were found ESCHERICHIA COLI HEMOLYTIC (10^7) (it lysed with coli-proteaceae bacteriofag and pyobacteriofag and sensitive to NALIDIXIC ACID, NORFLOXACIN, CIPROFLOXACIN and CO-TRIMOXAZOL) and CLOSTRIDIUM in significant amount (10^6). My Doctor wrote me a prescription for ALFA NORMIX (containing RIFAXIMIN) or CIPROFLOXACIN. I chose ALFA NORMIX. I hope it will work for me and cured my PATM.
Avatar n tn When the baby boomer generation fimally retires and ends up with pain and quality of life issues,,,,maybe then the government and the FDA, and the DEA, and the AMA will be forced to stop poisoning us with their lab rat clones. ONly until chronic pain patients stand up as a whole and blend their voice will we have a say in our treatments and quality of life. I promise you that if our meds were "clean", the w/d's and tapers would be much, much easier.
Avatar m tn I have taken multiple STD panels for every STD HIV, syphilis, goon, chylmedia, hep, and herpes at 2 weeks, 6 weeks and 3 months all neg. I even followed up with an HIV and syphilis at 4.5 months and was neg. I did receive treatment for the possible bacterial infections STD given z pack, doxy, ofoflax, uribel and something for trich. My neuro said it's probably a unknown virus.
Avatar n tn Keeping a diary of food consumed, physical and mental feelings each day, and physical activity will aid in discovering specific reasons for allergic reactions. Caffeine allergy symptoms can be as subtle as tingling in the mouth, itchy skin, and minor swelling of the throat. People who have these reactions every day may not even notice them. Many alternatives are available to replace caffeinated beverages and foods.
Avatar f tn This condition will remove just about every ounce of self-esteem. I only go out when I have to work, get food, etc. Oh and it's been 4 years since this began. And, I did an experiement with a small area and left some of these little xxxxx in place. Yes it closes up but then it eventually swells back up and there they are. They have also fused together and come out in large "chunks". I've tried many natural remedies but still looking.
