Pain is mostly on left side but will linger to right shoulder. Everything will worsen when head turns in any direction but straight.Headaches will focus behind the left eye or base of the skull. Intense pain in thighs when getting up after laying in bed like someonr just wrapped them in tiny rubber bands,
From this study (1 year ago):
I'm afraid all of these are working against one another and the 2 antibiotics at the same time worries me. Also, the extreme perspiration, weakness that happens every morning, when walking, shopping, etc. happens sometimes just walking around the house or after I take my pills .
From this study (2 years ago):
Does this drug promote osteoarithis? I have this in both hips and 3 to 4 months after taking MRI.s showed osteoarthritis in all my joints. After taking the drug for 14 days, I had to stop, left knee locked up, weekness in entire left leg, it was 3 days before I could use it to go up the stairs.
