Wrote Previously. This All Started With Bronchitis 8 Weeks Ago. I Was Put On Biaxin And A Week Later Was Very Sick With Nasuea, Diahreahha Loss Of Appetite "dizzy" Head And Weakness. Antibiotic Was Changed To Clear Up Bronchitis And Chest Xray Was Done. Other Symptoms Did Not Clear Up. By March 19 Had Muscle Pain In Upper Legs And Arms And Was Not Able To Stand Or Walk For Long. Doctor Prescribed Prednesone And Ran Tests For Connective Tissue Disorder. Ended Up In Emerg With Stomach Pain By March 25. Took Me Off Prednesone And Said To Try Acid Blocker Previcid In Combination With Domperidone To Settle The Stomach And Bowel Issues. Have Only Slightly Elevated Sdt Levels Which Indicates The Connective Tissue Issue Is Not Serious. The Stomach Issue Seems To Be Gradually Resolving Itself. I Was Told It Can Take 3 Or 4 Months To Get Over A Severe Reaction To Biaxin. Has Anyone Run Into This Before? However, I Am Still Weak And Tired. I Have Trouble Sleeping And My Muscles Are Still Sore And Achy. I Can't Stand Or Walk For Any Length Of Time. When Touched, My Upper Legs, Upper Arms And The Shoulder Blade Area Fee Bruised. I'm Now Being Tested For Thyroid, And Possilby A Recurrance Of Mono (which I Had Many Years Ago) Do These Symptoms Raise Any Ideas With Anyone?
