Avatar m tn 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.
Avatar n tn 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 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.
Avatar m tn It is effective with bacterial and viral infections, and some but not all fungal infections. The Flip-Turn is the original, and still the best Sinus Flush. WARNING! DISCLAIMER! The technique in this manual involves bending over in a hot shower. Obviously, if you bend over in a shower, there is a slight possibility that you can get dizzy and fall down. You could possibly hit your head, get knocked out, or break something.
Avatar m tn 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?
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 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 f tn I tried to remove one with tweezers, and it was very tacky (as in sticky) and clearly goes deep under the skin. Part of it broke off but I could still see that the pore was plugged and a day or two later top of the plug was sticking out again. i can't find ANYTHING online that looks like it.
