I had been having some bleeding between periods 3 times prior (it was very little blood and it increased each time) and I thought it was from taking too much Tylenol for cramps and pains but I went to urgent care and was told I have a UTI (urinary tract infection). I believe the ciprofloxacin antibiotic they gave me caused peripheral neuropathy so I stopped taking it. I'm on my period again now and I went to the ER for numbing in both arms and I'm told I still have a UTI and they gave me different antibiotics (nitrofurantoin) or macrobid I think, that I'm scared to take in fear they'll exacerbate the neuropathy. So what does bleeding between periods have to do with neuropathy? Is there a connection?

I was put on ramipril to lower my BP before my carpal tunnel and ulnar nerve compression operation. I Make cider for a living and did consume regular amounts of my product in daily tasting. After the op my hand turned from a tingle and numb fingers to feeling stiff and started to hurt, 18 months on and I have stopped drinking alcohol completely, still taking my ramipril and the problem is getting worse as the neuropathy has spred to my lower & upper arm muscles, elbow and just lately my shoulder joint, All on my left side. I went private to a neurologist who said it was due to alcohol that I had peripheral neuropathy , So why is it getting worse now I have stopped the consumption of alcohol , is it the ramipril ?
Was given 60mg Methadone in 2006 by pain management due to eventual tolerance to pain meds. Within two years I voluntarily wanted the dose lowered to 40mg a day going to 20 mg within several years once I discovered the $40,000 spent on straightening my teeth along with surgeries to correct my bite only to have teeth breaking off. Am now on 3 mg d but am experiencing very painful ulnar neuropathies aside from the stinging in feet from titrating down. As I decrease, the soles of my feet sting but it only lasts a few nights then the feet don't keep me awake. However the neuropathy in my arms does keep me awake.
