Minocycline and sinus infection

Common Questions and Answers about Minocycline and sinus infection


Avatar n tn ordered CT scan for next week to see if there is still some type of sinus infection. I still continue to have sinus pain on right side, especially around jaw and can feel pain in my top teeth. I also discharge a LOT of rubbery, thick mucous from the right side of my nose since the surgery...I never had anything close to this consistency before the surgery. Is is possible that I have had some kind of complication from this surgery that would be causing all of these frequent infections?
Avatar n tn I have one little brown spot on each side of my armpit area, and that's it. Oh, and I only took the minocycline for about 6 months. I know for some people, they have to take it continually in order to prevent reoccurance. I hope my post brings hope to some of you!
Avatar f tn My symptoms started with what looked and felt like a yeast infection under only the hood of the clitoris, once that cleared up I was still experiencing extreme sensitivity on the clitoris and/or the inner labia. My inner labia are swollen to some degree every day; sometimes sensitivity comes with this, sometimes not. When I say sensitivity I mean that every little hair, underwear or anything that touches my inner labia or clitoris is an irritant!!
Avatar n tn and becomes a yeast infection.. so i get it before and after a eyast infection and it makes the yeast infection much worse and painful putting monestat cream and baby powder at the same time calms it down a bit temporarily (or the pain at least an itch) i also get them sometimes before my period too!! PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF ANY OF YOU FOUND AN ANSWER..
Avatar f tn The symptoms initially are very close to a yeast infection and UTI, however Vulvodynia is not an infection. Search it on the internet-If you have questions, let me know. Unfortunately I am very knowledgable on the subject.
Avatar n tn (I was on minocycline for 8 weeks then Cefdinir 4 weeks for acne total of 12 weeks) The first 3-4 weeks of sickness I thought I just had a bad flu with fever, night sweats, amnesia, infected sinus and Phgelm.
Avatar f tn I am checking it out. I did have a holter monitor and it came back sinus tachycardia with any kind of movement. It didn't show any T waves, so I'm assuming I don't have CFS. But, who knows. I'll be out to MAYO soon and maybe they can come up with a diagnosis. MSA (Multiple System Atrophy) is a rare disease and from what I am reading, there is no cure. People diagnosed with it usually die withing in 6-10 years.
Avatar n tn He's leaning towards a combination of sinus pressure, since I have cronic allergies and sinus troubles. And still having swelling from the cellulitis. He said he's 95% certain the infection didn't get into the eye area. I appreciate your advise, I didn't know where to turn next. If you have anymore advise, please let me know.
237053 tn?1258832026 Then the numb sensation came back in my toes, the arm and hand pain, twitching, and Dizziness (like rocking in a boat), ear and eye aches, and weakness and fatigue. All tests are still normal including MRi of brain and spine. I've seen a Rheum who ruled out auto immune. So then they tested me for lyme and I had those two reactive bands (but that dr said I didn't have it and that I only had it in the past.) He also stated I had the EBV in the past.
Avatar n tn Opthamology exam WNL-MRI showed mass rt sinus and he is being treated for infection (no apparent symptoms,though)OTC migraine meds offer NO relief-zebutal to sleep( it takes the"edge off so he can sleep through the night) -ibuprofen takes"edge"off,He hates to take anything because then the headache (he says it is a constant 8) goes off the chart. Hwe wakes up with pain. He is an honor student missing class,he is missing off season baseball, he is missing life.
Avatar f tn I'm 38, and spent the past year battling an unable to diagnose skin infection that took over my right cheek. It was like a sinus of non stop pus spewing boils. It was a nightmare and the only thing that actually got rid of it was a drawing salve I found in the US called Prid's. On April 4 I had the last part of my demon infection cut out (packed with gauze etc) by my plastic surgeon. We ened up having to cut it out twice (and I think a third slice will be needed).
Avatar n tn off minocycline (because he felt too sick to take anything) for 2 weeks and then he was fine and started minocycline. Severe headaches started 10-20 (no minocycline since).Opthamology exam normal. MRI showed mass rt orbit and he is being treated for sinus infection (but NO SYMPTOMS-ie frontal pain, congestion.) OTC migraine meds have no relief. He won't take 600 mg ibuprofen because he said once it wears off he feels like his headache is off the chart.
Avatar f tn my levels were 450 when I first found out about the elevated levels...had just finished taking drugs for sinus infection then and thought levels would drop when done ....not true ...they have remained high [dropping to 310 ]this last year and after lots of test I am no further along in knowing why....but I have no symptoms of ill health....Doctors say come back if any show up...it's not a worry...
Avatar n tn I have a theory on why this happens and what this is.... I believe it is a fungal infection of the scalp. The reason I think this is that the waxy sebum has a sort of "fruity" smell or "sweet and sour" smell. That just so happens to be the same smell that happens under your fingernails when you get finger nail fungus. Anyone who wears tips or acrylics knows what smell I am talking about.
Avatar m tn Went to the doctor who though I had a sinus infection and he gave me antibiotics and nasal spray. I don't think this rash like mark is due to a sinus infection. So to calm the itch I'm using hydrocortisone once a day and icing it the rest of the time. Also taking minocycline 100g at night and metrodizinol after I shower. I have rosacea. This rash had been consistent for nearly two weeks any help would be appreciated.
Avatar m tn I usually don’t get headaches and have a very low pain tolerance so there’s no telling how bad they really are. My doctor also found that I have an extra sinus and thought that maybe this was the cause of the headaches and possibly the high WBC. She suggested that I see an ear nose and throat specialist. I went to see the specialist. This guy checks it out and says, there’s no way that this is the problem.
1550149 tn?1340004330 It made perfect sense to me and reflected my experience (sudden onset of full blown RA after sinus infections and flu vaccine). I now take 4.5 milligrams of LDN per day and I feel better than I have in years. If I feel stiffness or pain late in the day ibuprofen helps but I rarely need it. LDN works by supporting the immune system and increasing the availability of endorphins. It is safe and F.D.A. approved (opiate addiction) at 50 milligrams per day (the max dose for R.A. is 4.
Avatar n tn I recently took Levaquin for a sinus infection and experienced what can only be attributed to that medicine. I had very violent thoughts, couldn't sleep and am now experiencing anxiety. I looked up the side effects of Levaquin and it said to discontinue or call your Dr. if you experience "bad thoughts". Of course, nowhere can i find what type of bad thoughts can be caused by this drug and my Dr. said he never heard of anything like this.
220917 tn?1309788081 His exacerbation that lead to diagnosis was thought originally a sinus infection. He was treated first with zithromax and later tequin and oral prednisone. He got worse. Truthfully, before this there had been subtle signs something was amiss. After a bout of Bronchitis and a sinus infection he had numbness and tingling on the outer portion of his right hand. When he got heated he had a dark spot appear in his vision. Years earlier he had had color vision changes.
Avatar f tn The only thing that has helped me is minocycline for 2-3 weeks. Please ask your doctor about oral antibiotics and see if it helps. I know how frustrating it can be to have a rash on your chin that people stare at.
Avatar n tn I have recently had a chest/sinus infection for the last 2 months - lots of sinus pain and some serious coughing up of yucky stuff, my doc gave me antibiotics co-amoxycill or something simillar which was useless then followed up with a course of doxycycline which it seems have helped cos although still bringing up phlegm the cough isn't killing me anymore (somtetimes cough so hard i was retching). finished course yesterday and today i have o/t??? conected???
Avatar f tn It turned out the 'migraines' were actually sinus headaches. The untreated sinus infection and a severe UTI had caused the flare-up that landed me in the ER. At that time, I was on roughly 10 different medications, including Cymbalta, the commercials for which warn not to use it with migraine meds. (Unfortunately, I've since thrown out all the other meds, so I can't tell you what they were.) It was my initial conclusion that the myoclonus was caused by a drug interaction.
Avatar n tn I thought I was going crazy with the same symptoms as you. I am currently being treated for a sinus infection. It is actually my 3rd sinus infection this year and I am wondering if this is related. I too have the neck discomfort, a lightheaded feeling and what I call fog brain. I had stage 1 breast cancer last year and I attribute all of my problems now to the chemo. I will check this site in a few days to see if anyone else suffers the same problems. Thank you again!!!
594150 tn?1252591688 No I have no pain, no nausea, the doctor and neurologist do not think it is an ear infection and I have had all the usual blood tests and my blood pressure has always been normal....which is why im stumped! I will definately get myself to an optician to see if they can shed any light on my dizziness, although it was not that long ago that I went.....
Avatar n tn I must add that I have investigated every doctor and test such as heart, cat scan, MRI, ear specialist, sinus specialist, chiropractor and bloodwork. I went to the gynecologist last week to discuss this and she said this was extreme but not unheard of especially since I had been to alot of doctors and everything else was ruled out. I was wondering if anyone else had experienced any extreme symptoms leading up to menopause.
Avatar f tn It is severe and I don't know what is wrong. This was 5 days ago and it hurts very bad. I have seen several doctors for the scalp pain and they are still not sure what caused this or how to treat it. The pain is enough to make me physically ill and not want to eat. It brings me to tears every day. Could she have damaged the nerves or follicles? She said she didn't pull out any hair, but I think she did. I have never felt this much pain before. Please help me!
Avatar f tn Anyway, I'm testing it but be warned it does have a black box warning for cancer although the derms I've talked to don't think there's any risk. Anyway, like I said, I'm doing a spot test. Used it before and had some chest and sinus congestion but at this point I'm curious if it will help and maybe the sides will be temporary.
Avatar n tn This week for the first time, I have 3-4 cuts after sex accompanied by a low-grade yeast infection. I went to the doctor today and was tested for Herpes and given a prescription for Valtrex (which I can't afford). She said she thought there was a 40% chance it was herpes (my boyfriend gets mouth cold sores, but neither of us has any other history of HSV) and a 60% chance it was "just tears" and said I should just make sure I use KY, which I already do.
Avatar n tn The problem started during allergy season, which for me is late April - early May. I thought at first that it was due to a sinus infection. I am going to try and take some antibiotics because the heavy breathing started after I had a bacterial infection in my nose. I am interested to see if antibiotics will work. I have also been taking an allergy medication called Chlorpheniramine.
Avatar f tn I am 52 years old and my sticky, greasy hair problem started after I had a sinus infection and was perscribed a Z pack to take. Two days after I completed the Z pack was when I first noticed my hair problem. Like many of you, I have scrubbed my hair until my fingers and hand ache. I am going to try all of your suggestions. I have already changed my shampoo 4 different time and yet nothing helps. I am about ready to pull my hair out!! I will let you all know how your suggestions work.
