Penicillin Headache Causes and Reviews

Almost everyone has had a Headache. Headache is the most common form of pain. It's a major reason people miss days at work or school or visit the doctor.

The most common type of Headache is a tension Headache. Tension Headaches are due to tight muscles in your shoulders, neck, scalp and jaw. They are often related to stress, depression or anxiety. You are more likely to get tension Headaches if you work too much, don't get enough sleep, miss meals, or use alcohol.

Other common types of Headaches include migraines, cluster Headaches, and sinus Headaches. Most people can feel much better by making lifestyle changes, learning ways to relax and taking pain relievers.

Not all Headaches require a doctor's attention. But sometimes Headaches warn of a more serious disorder. Let your health care provider know if you have sudden, severe Headaches. Get medical help right away if you have a Headache after a blow to your head, or if you have a Headache along with a stiff neck, fever, confusion, loss of consciousness, or pain in the eye or ear.

I have been taking penycillin now for a week because of an infection leading to root canal. From the penycillin, I have experienced Headaches, dizziness, vertigo type symptoms, body and muscle aches and cramping. Symptoms have increased as the days have gone on. It was recommended to me to seek a "refrigerated" PRObiotic which you can find in health food stores. Penycillin strips away bacteria, both bad and good bacteria. Probiotics, which are live cells in pill form, help to replenish your body. I was instructed to take probiotics in between the penycillin and take the whole bottle of probiotics, even after the penycillin is gone. I have also been told to "double up" the doseage of the probitoics. So, we will see... hopefully it will help and hopefully this post might help you?
