    dentist put me on penicillin VK for a fractured tooth before root canal and cap. I started med at 6 pm went to bed around 10 pm and started getting upper back pain muscle spasms. Severe muscle spasms that make it hard to stand and breath because all of my torso muscle freeze up. this has been happening for 4 days with no other factor out of the ordinary. I've had a back x-ray and blood work. I'm sure the pen VK is the reason.
