Hi, I haven't posted in some time. My questions have to do with pain and other symptoms and how long it takes antibiotics to give relief. I have been on a picc line since August 07. I did 8 weeks of Rocephin 2 grams daily, and now on Doxy 100mg twice daily. I have this daily, dizziness, ringing ears, head pressure, crunchy neck, terrible painful neck especially between shoulder blades, and my brain feels dead. I am interested in knowing if these symptoms are going to alleviate. And I know were all not the same. If some of you have had these terrible symptoms, after starting antibiotics how long of a time frame did it take to start getting relief. Or if the symptoms never disappear I'd like to know that also.

Anyone know what causes the back pain and crunchy neck? Is this just inflamation? Will the brain fog get better?

Re: Pain

Hi , I have not been on a pic line but have been on antibiotics . I could feel relief off and on immediately.However, I also felt worse too ( Herx reaction). You may not feel well for some time it depends on treatment, how long you have been infected etc. I'm surprised to hear you are on only 200 mgs a day. I was on 400 and some doctors prescribe up to 600 per day. My doctor states I can take over the counter anti imflamatory pills. This helps me. Sorry I can't answer all you questions. Take Care, Leb
