THOUGHT I WOULD THROW THIS OUT ON THIS FORUM ALSO. I HAD BRONCHITIS 8 WEEKS AGO AND WAS PUT ON BIAXIN AND WITHIN A WEEK WAS VERY SICK WITH NASEAU, DIAHREAHHA, LOSS OF APPETITE, "DIZZY" HEAD AND WEAKNESS. ANTIBIOTIC WAS CHANGED AND BRONCHITIS CLEARED UP BUT OTHER SYMPTOMS DID NOT. BY MARCH 19 HAD DEVELOPED MUSCLE PAIN IN UPPER ARMS AND LEGS AND HAD TROUBLE WALKING OR STANDING FOR ANY LENGTH OF TIME. WAS PUT ON PREDNESONE AND GIVEN A BLOOD TEST FOR CONNECTIVE TISSUE DISORDERS. ENDED UP AT THE HOSPITAL WITH STOMACH PAIN BY MARCH 25 AND WAS TAKEN OFF THE PREDNESONE. IT DIDN'T SEEM TO HAVE A GREAT EFFECT ON THE MUSCLE PAIN AND WEAKNESS ANYWAY. I WAS GIVEN AN ACID BLOCKER AND DOMPERIDONE TO SETTLE THE STOMACH ISSUE AND IT APPEARS TO BE HAVING SOME EFFECT. MY REAL CONCERN IS THE MUSCLE ISSUE. I AM STILL VERY WEAK AND TIRED AND CAN'T STAND OR WALK FOR LONG. MY ARM AND LEG MUSCLES ARE ACHY AND FEEL BRUISED IF THEY ARE TOUCHED-ALSO THE MUSCLES IN THE SHOULDER BLADE AREA. ALSO HAVE TROUBLE SLEEPING. THEY ARE NOW LOOKING INTO THYROID; A RECURRANCE OF THE MONO VIRUS (WHICH I HAD MANY YEARS AGO) OR MAYBE POLYMYALGIA? DO THESE SYMPTOMS RELATE TO ONE OF THESE AS FAR AS ANYONE ELSE HAS EXPERIENCED?:confused:
