antibiotics the cause? your thought if you may.
hey everyone, just a question...i was on bactrim for a year and a half about, on and off, stopped it last oct/nov. it was for acne, because NOTHING else worked that i found, but i found something over the winter that works unbelieveable. i was even on accutane in the past, didnt work. anyways, i stopped the bactrim last oct/nov. i had mono in dec, along with a massive tonsil infection.. i was in the hospital for a wk, didnt eat anything for almost 2 wks, and i was on cleocin (antibiotic) during and for a wk/2 after the infection..i lost 30 lbs about due to not eating (because of the ear/swallowing pain/trouble of the tonsil infection..3-4 wks after recovering from the tonsil infection, i started getting dull aches and pains under left ribcage, and right in the middle was sore/swelled up..didnt know what it was for a few wks, then figured out it was acid reflux maybe. changed diet and lifestyle, no more pains really, just still the soreness/bloating, then had the sore burning throat for a fwe months..now, my symptoms are bloating and the sore stomach still a little, mild heartburn sometimes, shortness of breath a little (feels heavy), slight burning throat, and a little wheezing. most of the symptoms come around 4-6pm and last til a little before bed time.. i'm thinking all the antibiotics couldve killed some of the good bacteria that i need, and my system is all out of wack? if this is so, would it ever re-adjust? i take 40mg nexium in the morning, and started taking zantac 150 before dinner.. im about to sway off the nexium. the zantac seemed to help a bit of the swelling..do you think it could be the antibiotics that did it? i'm only 20 yrs old, there's got to be a good reason for these probs and i cant get a grip on it..tests show everything is fine. thx every1!
