Comments for this study:

Simon Naylor (3 years ago):

I have been trying to find a place to report this. was taking Amoxicillin to treat strep throat, and I developed what I believe is bursitis as a result. After beginning my 10 days of Amoxicillin my shoulder became very achy. The pain would come at about every two and half hours, or every three hours and it would last about 20-30 minutes. I could not sleep well for a week as a result of the pain. I went to a doctor and he did not think my pain was a result of strep throat (I thought it might have been rumatic fever). I realized a few days later that the pain started when I started the Amoxicillin. I finished my 10 days and noticed that the day after I stopped taking amoxicillin, the pain was much less and I could sleep. It is a few weeks later now and I still have some trouble lifting my arm a certain way, because of my shoulder. I am not sure why this trouble is lasting or what I should do, so I will go see another doctor this week. I am a 33 year old male with no other health problems, living in Nova Scotia Canada.
