Hi there, I was also prescribed Bactrim in December 2012 for a MRSA staph skin infection on my shin from a pedicure, and IMMEDIATELY after starting the antibiotic I started to feel partial tingling and numbness in left arm and left leg. Well, it's been 6 weeks since I took antibiotic and the numbness comes and goes but is still there most of the time, in parts of my leg and arm. I don't know how to get rid of it, the Dr. is running other tests to rule out vitamin deficiencies and high cholesterol and such, but now the tingling has gone to some toes and fingers/hands at times. What should we do? How do you prove it? I have never, ever had any of these problems and I am 44 years old and in great health other than the infection I got. Help!

i am 60, female and in general good health. i am also a smoker. i started taking Bactrim about 2 months ago for a VERY bad infection in my ankle. The Bactrim did little to take care of the infection but gave me a "one two punch" as far as side effects! i suffered EVERYTHING and currently i'm dealing with loss of taste-TOTAL, and tingling/numbness in my left hand-severe in 2 fingers. i was proscribed a penicillin based med after my "reation" to Bactrim and it seems to have done some good, HOWEVER i feel that Bactrim should be pulled from use! Too many people have been hurt by this med-it's just not worth it!
