From this study (2 months ago):
recurring cellulitis infection? Was hospitilized twice. 1st time left leg was infected, 1.5 weeks later was hospitalized for infection in right leg. Treated with Clindamycin both times and the infection cleared up. redness, swelling and warmness to the tough have all came back on my right leg. It started off small and slowly got bigger over time. skin is inflamed but not raised. Doctor said maybe Erythema Nodosum, but it is not itchy at all and there are no bumps or other rash like symptoms. It feels like an infection. both times I was hospitalized lasted for 4 days. I was given IV antibiotics there and then sent home on 4 days of antibiotics the 1st time and 1 week of antibiotics the 2nd time, all clindamycin. After both incidents, the redness returned a few days after the antibiotics were finished. Starting off small and subtle, fading in and out over the next couple days and gradually growing in size and migrating down the leg from just below the knee to a few inches above the ankles.

You need to go have Ultrasound. I had your same symptoms and turns out to be blood clots in the left leg. Started as pain in left leg in a 8-10 inch straight line above knee, inner thigh. Was warm to the touch, and tender to the touch. But only along the vein. Redness did not appear for a couple days. By then my leg was stiff and seemed solid and swollen. The pain then went below my knee. Go get Ultrasound immediately! Blood clots can kill you.

My doctor prescribed me this for 2 weeks, starting this medicine I immediately started getting leg pains at night (this is not something I have ever had before) 800 mg Motrin was not helping with the pain, after the first week I called them and told them it was becoming unbearable they told me "this happens sometimes" & to stop taking the medicine and drink lots of water with no other explanation to me about what the antibiotic was causing, I did what I was told and I stopped taking the medicine, two days later I broke out in a rash, this went away fairly quick. It has been about 3 weeks since I stopped the medication and I am still having pain especially at night, the doc prescribed me NAPROXEN (NAPROSYN) 500 MG TAB TABLET to help with pain, it's not helping at all, I am not getting ANY sleep. The doctors have run some test last week, my liver enzymes were up a bit so they tested me for Hep A, B, C they were all negative, I don't know if this antibiotic could have raised my levels and caused damage to my liver, I hope not, but they ran some more test and I should be getting my results soon.

Female, Age 18. I have been perscribed Clindamycin for a tooth infection. The last two nights I have been waking up and experiencing extreme pain in two joints. The first night it was my knee, it felt like I had twisted it severely and the pain did not subside till twenty minutes later. The next night it was my wrist, same amount of time and same level of pain. I went back to bed after the pain subsided. I woke up in the morning, took a shower then started to feel an extreme itch in my hands. I have red tiny dots (rash) on both of my hands, every spot of palms, but not the other side of the hands. The rash also goes down a little further to my wrists on the sides of my palms. I've been putting cortizone cream on it, but it won't go away. It's extremely itchy, burns, and feels like my skin is being stretched. Any thoughts? please?
