- Mucous in stools rolling std jab
Hi there, I was recently diagnosed with Balanitis, a small white ulcer has appeared on my foreskin caused by the trauma of the condition.
I went to the ER for the problem, worrying that it maybe and std, the nurse and doctor there told me to keep the ulcer clean and to keep strong soaps away from it, but to be safe they gave me the std shot along with 4 tablets to take. The next morning and ever since, I have been experiencing bad nausea and what started with comstipation, has now turned into dhiarea, when I pass a stool which has some sort of solidity to it, it is coated in mucous. Alongside this. Every time I have food sitting in my stomach, I feel very sick to the stomach.
Just wondering if this is a side effect of the drug, or if I have some kind of candida which is reacting with the drugs?? I had the jab on Wednesday and felt Ill first thing in the morning the next day. This is the third day of the illness, but seems less extreme throughout the day.
Sorry for the graphic nature of this post, just wondering if anyone had any answers before I spent another small fortune at the doctors!

- Keflex linked to coughing blood?
I was put on a week-long course of cephalexin/Keflex for an upper respiratory infection. It's been 5 days and I'm still coughing up blood. Before I started the medication I was starting to cough up a little, but now it's becoming worse. I did read that antibiotics for pneumonia or TB can cause coughing up blood, but I wasn't sure about Keflex.
- Soar throat after taking sertaline
half a pill first timw. severe soar throat 2 hrs after taking 25mg
- Still ill after several years (1 response)
I became ill several years ago.
It all started with a head cold that lasted a few months and left me with Tinnitus and chronic sinusitis.
After a nose operation and many visits to the doc and hospital, I am no closer to felling better or being cured.
My doc gave me Beconase Aq at first and this made me very unwell, causing me fatigue which would last for a few days. I'm still searching for help.
- Achilles tendon tear
At the end of my 10 day treatment time on Cephalexin 500 mg, I experience diarrhea, so I took acidophilus three times a day, and it went away. I also woke up with a Achilles ligament tear, with a bulge in the tendon, not a rupture. No changes in my daily routine, in regards to exercise, just swimming and walking.
- Mucinex dm caused balance problems
I bought Mucinex Dm to treat mild symptoms of sore throat and cough. I was following the instructions precisely of the time and the dosages needed. After two days in taking the medication I started to experience balance problems. Suddenly I would feel unsteady and dizzy, and had the feeling that I was falling down. Change in position of the head would trigger the symptoms even when I was in bed. Because my balance problems occurred after I started taking Mucinex I decided to stop the medication. It has been one week since I discontinued the medication and I feel slow improvement. If the symptoms do not stop completely I will make an appointment with a doctor. This was my first time to use Mucinex, but will never ever use this medication.

Comments from related studies:
From this study (3 days ago):
I've been taking 5 mg of lisinopril for 2 months and have developed a very sore throat making it quite difficult to swallow. I have no fever. The doctor said I had a raw nose and throat and prescribed nabumetone and amoxicillin. He's not my regular doctor and I suspect the lisinopril is to blame. I have had a mild dry cough since starting the lisinopril.
From this study (2 weeks ago):
painful swollen and inflammed great toe and ist metatarsil and below. Streaking inflammation. Now has large open wound
From this study (2 weeks ago):
Started a day after I started the medicine.
