- Severe leg/foot/ankle swelling from doxycycline
Was given five-day course of doxycycline for sinusitis and laryngitis. By end of third day had ankle edema (never had before), then MASSIVE leg/foot/ankle edema by fourth day Discontinued on fifth day after research revealed side effect of doxycycline. Took almost a week for swelling to go comletely away. Also felt completely exhausted and seemed to make the coughing and laryngitis much worse also.
- My experience with lyme
My final semester at college-
Woke up to extreme inflammation in what was determined to be a portion of my trapezius on the left side length of my next. It was accompanied by severely swollen lymph nodes throughout my entire body. I went about my day with what to me was seemingly a bad neck cramp and oncoming cold. In the afternoon I decided to participate in Track practice and what occurred after I am unsure about in terms of its relation to me performing physically or an autoimmune response against my peripheral nervous system. The next morning I woke up the left side of my trapezius was completely dysfunctional from its attachment to my cranium all the way down to the mid point of my back. It was accompanied by inflammation and sore pain at the point where the next connects to the shoulder girdle. Over the course of the next 8 months I went undiagnosed with Lyme, having seen neurologists and orthopedics in an attempt to find a solution. Reflecting on the first three months, I experienced significant effects on my emotional stability and cognitive capability. I would have severe mood swings--rage, depression, excitement-- and I would have difficulty with memory and train of thought- all of which can be confirmed by multitude of classmates. By the 8 month mark I had began to feel mild joint pain, particularly in areas I had formerly injured in athletic activity (ankles, lower back). At this point, my accessory nerve had not regenerated in terms of the portion affecting my trapezius, didn't regain any lost muscle function. I saw my physician, who discovered the Lyme infection. I took doxycycline over the next 3 months and saw significant improvement in my trapezius, which was accompanied by a decrease in lymph node size, as proven by comparison of MRIs. My fatigue dissipated and my moods/cognition returned to normal. I've regained about 70% of the function I formerly had with my trapezius (as compared to 0% prior to treatment). I wanted to write this because I have yet to see a similar case, understand the ambiguity of Lyme disease and the array of conditions it causes.
- Symptons from taking doxycyclin
I recently went in for a physical, everything was normal except my Creatinine levels. I had severe symptoms from burning hands/knuckles to feeling very tingly like cold needles. Also, burned very easily from sun even with 50 sun screen applied. Should I be worried about the Creatinine levels be abnormally high?
- Cfs/fibro, migraine
A strange thing happened when I started taking the Chantix for my smoking cessation...
MY MIGRAINES AND TENSION HEADACHES WENT AWAY!!!
As horrible as they were, and as bad as I have prayed for them to go away, I did not even notice that I didn't have the excruciating headaches anymore!!
I stopped taking the chantix and the headaches gradually came back but it took me awhile to make this correlation. Once I did, I started taking the chantix again. it started working immediately... taking the migraines and neck pain away again! Now, I can take 1/2 of a pill every other day and that seems to keep the migraines away! There are side effects and I don't know if it would work for everyone but it sure worked for me!
- Pain in the neck and arthritis after taking generic fosamax
I started taking Generic Fosamax about six months ago and last week i had a terrible neck pain and spasm. I went to my accupunturist and he did accupunture and massage, but the pain did not go away. Later that week, I noticed that I had a lot of pain every time I flexed my left knee, and later that same day it started to sweell, like in people who have rheumatoid arthritis. I took my last dose of Generic Fosamax last Fryday, and I am wondering if it is the cause of my ailments. I am a healthy person, I exercise regularly and always eat healthy. I wwent again to my accupunturist yesterday and he ordered an Xray of my knee. I would like to know if somebody has had my problems while taking Fosamax and how they got cured. Excuse my English, it is not my main language. Thank you.

From this study (11 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 (3 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 (3 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."
