From this study (4 months ago):
Been I'll for 9 months. Just recently found pneumonia. Can't afford dermatologist and do for doesn't know what the hives are. You can write with your finger on my skin and it will show up.
From this study (2 years ago):
Severe neck and shoulder pain began on day 5 of taking the 100mg dose 2x daily. Took drug for 13 days of the 14 day Rx. On the 14th day I went back to the doctor, who then gave me 2 other Rx's for the pain. The shoulder pain has dissipated, but the neck pain is lingering. My first day off the drug was 7/23, and today is 8/6 and I still have to use ice and/or diclofenac sodium to get relief. The pain has gone from severe (7/23) to least/moderate (today).
From this study (2 years ago):
I came to your website searching for information and answers with regards to neck pain and doxycycline hyclate. I took it in a very low/non-antibiotic form (Oracea) for about 2 1/2 years; after about a month of stopping it, the neck pain disappeared. At the time, I attributed the pain cessation to some natural supplements (turmeric, coq10, omegas 3,6,9) I had coincidentally begun taking. I was pain free for about a year until last week when i began taking doxycyline hyclate (for acne rosacea). Within 3 days, the neck pain returned. I stopped taking it and drew the conclusion between the 2 doxy meds. It has been 4 days and i am in worse pain. It has also traveled down my back and left arm. I hope this helps with your study, and I hope and pray somebody is able to find a treatment soon! I was so upset when i scrolled down to the "treatment" section and it said "n/a."
