I was recently prescribed amoxycillin 875mg prior to having dental work done, I had no active oral infections. Upon taking the first dose, within an hour I became very ill, general malaise, weakness, headache, mental confusion, followed by nausea fever chills and severe joint pain. I never had a reaction to antibiotics before although I do take take them very often. The pharmacist told me this was my bodies reaction to the battle going on against the infection.
I thought, I have little or no infection in my mouth, but have had problems in areas affected by the reaction head (memory problems), joints despite therapy and supplements my joints especially my knees are painfull forcing me to quit running two years ago and now affecting my mobility. I have had two lyme tests both neg. I think this reaction may be indicative of an underlying infection???
