Avatar f tn I took metronidazole on 6/6/11 for BV as well. On 6/16/11, 5 days after the last pill, I broke out in the worst case of hives I have ever had. All around my hair line, into my scalp, along my hip and pelvic bones, on my jaw line and neck - -burning, painful and firey. The doctors tried to get to the bottom of it, but eventually they sent me on my way and I never did determine the source of the problem.
Avatar n tn I have been takng Flagyl (Metronidazole) for 5 days now and the past 3 days the right hand goes numb around the pinky and ring finger and all along that side up my arm. should i be worried? or stop taking the medication? im only supposed to take it for 2 more days.
Avatar n tn I have been prescribed a course of Metronidazole (Flagyl) by my GP. (3 400mg tabs per day with food). I have done much reading on my infection but have been unable to find any information suggesting this antibiotic is the correct treatment. It is reasonable to assume I have been carrying this infection for many years due to the related timeline of symptoms. I am concerned for my fertility and want to ensure I am being treated with the correct medication.
Avatar m tn I'm having some health concerns. Let me be as concise and clear as possible. Recent bout of headaches so doctor ordered MRI of the brain 10 days from now. I'm 27 Relevant factors~ 1. After visiting China approx 1 1/2 months ago did a parasite cleanse with "metronidazole (Chinese produced)" it gave me big time headaches when first taking it but that's a possible side effect- 2. Recent flu shot, maybe a touch of cold.
Avatar n tn My daughter has had constant nausea,now for about 3 months. I took her in to see a Pediatric Gastroenterologist, he performed a endoscopy on her and after the test was done he informed me that my daugter had some stomach inflamation and almost an ulcer he suggested her to just take Prevacid. Is this good enough? I feel see should be given some type of anti-biotic of some sort. Not just prevacid for the acid reflux, since she did show stomach inflammation.
Avatar n tn It has to be treated with an antimicrobial. Flagyl works in some cases. It needs to be monitored to make sure it clears so work with a doc who knows what they're doing when it comes to C. diff. Not all docs are familiar with its treatment.
Avatar f tn very weak arms,tingling can't really move them very Good...stomach aches bad and nausea..I'm calling him tomorrow.
Avatar f tn I'm taking antibiotics, including Metronidazole 500mg for h.pylori. I was at my sister's wedding last night and took 2 glasses of bubbly to toast with the guests, and then switched to water all night (being under the impression that antibiotics just worsen the impact of the alcohol so this is why you shouldn't drink). About 6-7 hours later I started feeling really unwell (nausea, frequent washroom trips, flushed skin)..
Avatar m tn Since i was 13 i am feeling tired,fatigue,nervous,agitated,depressed,nausea,heartburn,anxiety.I have done many tests and almost all are ok.Except for the ones below Neutrophyls 29.7 % 45 - 80 * Neutrophyls 1.87 mii/μL 2 - 8 * Limfocytes 58.8 % 20 - 55 Neutrophyls 39.6 % 45 - 72 *Monocytes % 11% 2-10 * Limfocytes 48.
Avatar f tn My main issue is this intense nausea that comes and goes, and doesn't seem to be caused by anything in particular. The weirdest thing is that the nausea is partially or completely relieved by these strange hiccup-burps. I've found my whole life that I cannot burp, instead I make this loud, sudden hiccuping sound, followed by a silent exhale of air, which occur most frequently after eating and drinking.
Avatar f tn When this all started I felt like I had the stomach flu. A very noisy stomach, severe nausea, waterbash...However, when I got home I didn't have a fever and I never ended up getting sick to my stomach. The noisy stomach only happens on occasion now (very rarely), but soon after the nausea began, so did diffuse stomach pain. It can localize in one spot for a day, or it can be all over all day. Some days I have stomach pain, some days I have none.
24288 tn?1390180204 Hi, giardiasis can cause the symptoms described by you. Metronidazole is the most commonly used antibiotic for giardia infection. Side effects may include nausea and a metallic taste in the mouth. Don't drink alcohol while taking this medication. Also, amoebiasis can cause the symptoms described by you. Its also responsive to Metronidazole. To find a cure you need to consult your primary care physician for proper assessment. Regards.
Avatar f tn Had diarrhea, vomiting, stomach cramps. Took ciprofloxacin, 2x 250mg per day for 5 days. Diarrhea subsided but nausea + stomach pain continued. On return have had 6 parasite tests - Aeromonas Hydrophilia found, but ciprofloxacin taken. No other parasites. Symptoms are worse over 2 years. Symptoms: - Constant nausea 20 mins after eating, worse in evening, and vomiting if no anti-emetics taken.
Avatar n tn Does anyone know if a yeast infection can just go away on its own after a few days? Also, has anyone else experienced GI problems with Keflex and Metronidazole? I had a kidney infection and UTI. Long story short, i was hospitalized and sent home with Keflex. My doc says it probably is the cause of this terrible diahrrea i have. So, i started the Metronidazole today. Causing a lot more nausea though.
Avatar n tn Hello, Although metronidazole is the preffered antibiotic,but it has a strong metallic taste and can cause nausea and vomitings in some. It will take a few days after therapy for the symptoms to subside. Tinidazole is an antibiotic that appears to have fewer side effects than metronidazole and is also more effective in treating bacterial vaginosis. You can use metronidazole gel(metrogel) or clindamycin cream(cleocin) for local application on vagina.They have fewer side effects.
Avatar n tn First, I will feel a bit dizzy and nauseas, then I will have to run to the bathroom because the diarrhea hits me and I feel like while I'm going to the bathroom I will pass out, then the nausea and dizziness with cold chillls and then I am hot so I have to take the sweater off that I put on because I was cold. I am 30 years old and I have a mild case of lupus that has been under control with plaquinil over the past ten years.
Avatar m tn If it persists, have this evaluated further by your doctor for proper management. Take care and regards.
Avatar m tn Amoebiasis is an infection of the intestines and it is treated with metronidazole. Some side effects with this medication include nausea, and altered taste in the mouth, headaches and loss of appetite. So, you should continue the medication, but if you develop additional symptoms or if your symptoms are worsening then you may need to consult your doctor. Regards.
Avatar m tn Hi, the diarrhea could be due to Amoebiasis, hence you have been initiated on metronidazole. Some side effects with this medication include nausea, and altered taste in the mouth, headaches and loss of appetite. But if the diarrhea is worsening then other causes for your symptoms need to be ruled out. It could be due to other infections or inflammatory conditions of the bowel. The increased white blood cell count indicate an infective pathology. Regards.
Avatar n tn Clarithromycin 500 (twice a day), Metronidazole 500 (twice a day), Nexium 40 (twice a day) and Carafate before meals. The diarrhea is bearable, but the nausea is terrible. I have not throw up yet, but I think I would feel better if I could. Is this a side effect of this treatment?
Avatar f tn Have been told i have strep infection have had sore throat, tonsil stones, sinusitis, earache, dizziness nausea and now really bad stomach pains under my ribs. What is happening to me? I had allergic reaction few days back to metronidazole for a womans prob, my throat swelt up, so have no treatment for that now and on another antibiotic pencillin one for my throat.
Avatar f tn Bacterial vaginosis is vaginal condition that can produce vaginal discharge and results from an overgrowth of normal bacteria in the vagina. Treatment is by antibiotics. Although metronidazole is the preffered antibiotic,but it has a strong metallic taste and can cause nausea and vomitings in some. Tinidazole is an antibiotic that appears to have fewer side effects than metronidazole and is also effective in treating bacterial vaginosis.
Avatar n tn If Metronidazole (an antibiotic) is the one you took, it's the same as Flagyl. Common adverse reactions associated with systemic metronidazole therapy include nausea, diarrhea, and/or metallic taste in the mouth.
Avatar n tn I have had symptoms of abdominal pain (dull in lower center and right) with nausea, vomiting, lethargy, chest tightness, left shoulder heated radiating pain, headaches, frequent urination. I was diagnosed with H pylori and have been on triple antibiotics- Amoxicillan, omeprazole, metronidazole. I am also on Sucralfate for acid control, promethazine for vomit control and Hydrocodone for pain control. Does this really sound like H.
Avatar n tn You can be asymptomatic with this parasite and some say you will resolve this organism on its own. If you have symptoms such as diarrhea, bloating, gas nausea, they can treat you although the organism is resistant several anti parasitic drugs. You need to check with your doctor on treatment but they have had some sucess with a drug called nitazoxanide. Metronidazole and bacterim often don't work due to resistance. You may wait and see if the symptoms go away on their own.
Avatar f tn I finished taking metronidazole and trimethoprim on Thursday morning for a sinus infection. I then had a few drinks on Friday night, and have been vomiting since about 3 am Saturday morning and it has not ceased. I am wondering if it's likely this is a result of the residual medication in my body.
Avatar n tn Amoebiasis is an infection of the intestines and it is treated with metronidazole. Some side effects with this medication include nausea, an altered taste in the mouth, headaches and loss of appetite. Check with your doctor regarding this. As you wait for the evaluation process, ensure to include organic yogurt with your meals and have a healthy balanced diet. Regards.
Avatar f tn I have bouts of lower left abdomen pain accompanied by lower back pain, cramping, constipation and nausea. I can't even eat sometimes bc I get so nauseous. Doc determined it's IBS but I am wondering if anyone has similar symptoms with a different diagnosis?
Avatar m tn 1st time was with Metronidazole and I could not tolerate it. This time on tindamax (tinadazole). Have taken 1st of 3 daily doses, about 18 hrs. ago, now experiencing tingling, transient pains, some increased numbness in fingers, some toes. Urgently need advice as to risks of continuing the treatment (1 more doses, this evening). What risks am I taking if I go for it one more day? I really want to cure this but want to be mindful of permanently damaging myself.
