- 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!

- 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.

started tamiflu yesterday...After seeing doctor for typical flu symptoms but negative flu rapid test. Had 102.5 temp, chills, hacking cough. Fever broke after two doses. I have felt fine all day...now have severe sore throat (broken glass feeling with swallowing, and very swollen lymph-nodes in my neck. The only medications I take are estrodiol 1 mg, requip 4 mg and imitrex for migraines as needed. I actually feel great from the shoulders down and the jaw line up...but my throat is miserable. Has anyone else had this happen after taking Tamiflu?
From this study (1 month ago):
Have since experienced an outbreak of 5 med-large cysts on stomach and legs
From this study (2 months ago):
• Loose motions started on 11.9.1990. They were at first bulky 3 or 4 times a day. Iron tablets and other vitamins were discontinued
• Stay at the hospital was very traumatic. Diarrhea continued to get worse every day. Could eat only very soft rice and boiled vegetables I could not breathe. Could get a little relief only if my back was rubbed. Attendants soon tired of doing this all the time. I was told not to ask questions but continue with whatever medicines were given. I could not sleep. Burning sensation in stomach right up to the mouth. Burning sensation after passing stool. SLEEP was badly affected. I was told that I was depressed and that this was “normal” after a miscarriage of this sort.
Diarrhea continued for 6 months. Got better only after Valethamate bromide was given
