Cephalexin Pain In Extremity Causes and Reviews

Deep vein thrombosis, or DVT, is a blood clot that forms in a vein deep in the body. Most deep vein clots occur in the lower leg or thigh. If the vein swells, the condition is called thrombophlebitis. A deep vein thrombosis can break loose and cause a serious problem in the lung, called a pulmonary embolism.

Sitting still for a long time can make you more likely to get a DVT. Some medicines and disorders that increase your risk for blood clots can also lead to DVTs. Common symptoms are

  • Warmth and tenderness over the vein
  • Pain or swelling in the part of the body affected
  • Skin redness

Treatment includes medicines to ease pain and inflammation, break up clots and keep new clots from forming. Keeping the affected area raised and applying moist heat can also help. If you are taking a long car or plane trip, take a break, walk or stretch your legs and drink plenty of liquids.

Cephalexin Pain In Extremity Reviews

Thu, 21 Jun 2012

I also face critical situation low blood pressure,Headache and diarrhea. So i decided to quit and decide not to use like that medicine again.

Mon, 07 Nov 2011

One more pill to go before I finish my dose of Cephalexin for Cellulitis. First of all, the symptom worsened within the first 24 hours - both the doctors failed to tell me that. It did eventually work and about 48 hours later, the swelling and redness from Cellulitis started to decrease. The side effects were not severe, but, at worst, I experienced nausea, stomach ache, diarrhea, and depression (followed by the most whacked out dreams). This is not quite the drug from hell but I am very much ready to finish my dose.

Fri, 16 Mar 2012

After taking Cephalexin I experienced nausea, vomiting and headaches which 800mg of ibuprofen couldn't control.  The sweating (head to toe) was profuse and disconcerting.

Sat, 31 Mar 2012

After a double treatment of Cephalexin 500mg 4 times a day, I am still experiencing intestinal discomfort and loose stools. I also get a lot of gas, bloating and it makes it hard to go anywhere because of the sudden diahrrea that goes with it. I will NEVER take this drug again!

Sat, 18 Jun 2011

I am currently on Cephalexin for a kidney infection. I have so far suffered from joint pain, headaches, unusual vaginal pain and itching, dizziness and discovered a sore throat this morning. I plan to finish my dose but it seems like I'm suffering worse now than with my kidney infection.
