Hello All,

In August I had back surgery and was put on antibiotics for a month. After the first week I had very itchy hands and became sensitive to sun. My doctor changed the antibiotics and I continued for the full period. Approx 4 weeks after stopping the antibiotics I began to feel burning in my left shoulder, arm, thighs and shins with a headache. I began to have a dry cough and felt fatigued. Since then the burning has reduced and I am left feeling dizzy, fatigued and with a rash that appears on my arms and trunk when touched or when I am hot. I also feel very anxious, jittery. Feeling generally bad.

My doctor has done a lot of blood work and it showed some allergic response to dust mites, tree fungus and cat dander but nothing great. I also take Protonix for acid reflux which I have had for 2 years.

I have lots of specialist visits in my future but wondered if anyone else had experienced a similar antibiotic/drug related symptom?
