Comments from related studies:
From this study (4 days ago):
left bicep and thumb weakness after 3 days on antibiotic combo. Slightly elevated AST and ALT levels.
From this study (2 weeks 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.
