Azithromycin Pain Causes and Reviews


Pain is a signal in your nervous system that something may be wrong. It is an unpleasant feeling, such as a prick, tingle, sting, burn, or ache. Pain may be sharp or dull. It may come and go, or it may be constant. You may feel Pain in one area of your body, such as your back, abdomen, chest, pelvis, or you may feel Pain all over.

Pain can be helpful in diagnosing a problem. If you never felt Pain, you might seriously hurt yourself without knowing it, or you might not realize you have a medical problem that needs treatment.

There are two types of Pain: acute and chronic. Acute Pain usually comes on suddenly, because of a disease, injury, or inflammation. It can often be diagnosed and treated. It usually goes away, though sometimes it can turn into chronic Pain. Chronic Pain lasts for a long time, and can cause severe problems.

Pain is not always curable, but there are many ways to treat it. Treatment depends on the cause and type of Pain. There are drug treatments, including Pain relievers. There are also non-drug treatments, such as acupuncture, physical therapy, and sometimes surgery.

Azithromycin Pain Reviews

Wed, 11 Mar 2009
I was diagnosed with brochitis and was prescribed Azithromycin in liquid form. Within 90 minutes of consuming my first dose yesterday, I was hit with very intense abdominal Pain followed by horrible diarrhea,later compounded by some difficulty in breathing during the night. This morning I woke up to rashes on both upper arms and across my back. Won't be taking anymore of this stuff. Will stick with homeopathic remedies and see if it works.

i took Azithromycin as recommended by my friend who is a doctor. after less than an hour from the time i took it, my stomach was burning. after a while i was vomiting. then i had a diarrhea and my heartbeat was fast. i was catching up my breath. the Pain in my stomach was incomparable. it was extreme. i noticed, though, that my nose was no longer clogged and i was not coughing hard anymore. in less than twelve hours, my phlegm was no longer that sticky. the effect on my cough and cold was amazing. i wonder if there are ways to lessen the side effects of Azithromycin considering that it is really effective.
