I have been fighting lung infection for over a month. I broke down and let pulmonary doc give me antibiotic (which I dread taking). Seemed to be getting better took medication (levoquin) 4 days woke the 5th and Omg I couldn't lift my arm out to side it's like my muscle/joints were beaten with a bat 100 x's.
I already have chronic pain, back is main but last few yrs suffered dearly with leg issues. Spine doctor did MRI and well I got 4 other opinions have to have disc removed and fusion L5.
But my pulmonary doc wants CT Scan and P Function test before since my lung history issues haven't been so great.
Anyway back to the evil antibiotic, called the doctor and nurse called me back said to go to er, I had nobody home and I know when I go in they always keep me. Then hour later the Doc calls said he would call me in penicillin low dose. Said would take longer to shake this infection, but he will get me in for Scan by Monday.
I have pain medication and muscle relaxer so he said if I got worse or meds not helping to go to er.
Has anyone had such pain by reaction to antibiotic? This is the worse pain I have had in years.
