Re: Vaginal pain after antibiotics - any help appreciated
You are probably going to think this is crazy, but it actually happened to me. Last year, I had a UTI and went to my primary. He gave me the 3 day Cipro. I took it all, but by day 3, I had unbearble low back pain. Not really vaginal pain, but lower back and hip area.
I went back to my primary, they did another urine culture, and the UTI was gone. They even did x-rays to see if my kidneys were OK. I have a history of ovarian cysts, so I went to my GYN and that wasn't it, either.
It wasn't till I saw another specialist that I see for something else, that I found out. It was a reaction to the Cipro! I guess its not really common, but if you are allergic, it can cause "acute arthralgia" which is joint pain, and "acute myalgia", which is muscle pain or spasms.
My doc said to make sure any other docs I see, that I'm allergic to Cipro.
Hope this helps. Take care.
