Mr. Matheson (2 years ago):

Hello, i'm a 55 year old male,physically active, 12 months ago i was put on cephalexin for a minor cut which had developed a staph infection, i took the antibiotic for about one week,...the infection cleared up everything was fine.About one month ago i started to develop pain in my lower right leg, according to doctors i was told that it is anterior tibular tendonitis,..now ive started noticing joint stiffness and aching in my right elbow...im wondering if this could be a delayed result of the cephalexin that i had taken a year ago?...in the past i have expereinced pulled strained muscles etc,.. and it would usually clear up in a week or two,.. but this current case of tendonitis seems to be taking much longer,.. i wondered if anyone has had this experience and if so how did they deal with it..any help would greatly be appreciated... thank you...Mr. Matheson
