  • From this study (51 minutes ago):

  • Also have Bartonella. Probably having a herxheimer reaction.

    Dysphalgia has been intermittent and infrequent, but episodes last for several days.

    Begins suddenly, rather than getting progressively worse.

    Can swallow liquids (including thick ones like milkshakes) without trouble, but solids take concentrated effort and cause pain. Have pain in one ear, and swallowing solids increases it along with giving me pain on the right side of my throat.

  • Linda VW on Jun, 28, 2014:

    Was given Bactim tablets after cystoscopy and after taking 2, had a severe allergic reaction.

    Tongue was swollen and metallic taste with throat closing up along with rash, hives all over my body.

    Had to go to the ER to get steroid and Benedryl.

    The ER doctor contacted my urologist and switched me to Cipro and took me off of Bactrim.
