Welcome to JustAnswer Health...and thank you for your question. I am a verified Expert and am delighted to help you today. No, this is not a known side effect of this medication. Is it one or both thighs?
wound up with a cold and or sinus infection, dr put me on a Zpac
since then my right thigh has been giving good zings now and then
Zpac is great..... most people can take it without any problem at all.
What is going on with your thigh(s)?
i have no idea, i took the Zpac w dinner and a couple of hours later my upper thigh started hurting, like muscle spasm almost? it was going good for a while too, but it stopped, now its only once in a while it gives a good zing. Its not red or anything but
i dont remember hitting it or anything during the day
It probably is just that... a muscle spasm. We can get those from lots of things....sitting too long...standing too long..moving , stretching the muscle...etc
It can be due to something as simple as sitting with your elbow on your thigh, triggering a spasm later in the day.
hmm how a bout a foot under said leg?
What will be good is to apply a warm compress to relax the muscle
YES that can do it too:-)
massage it lightly
i cant rememeber if i had my foot under me but its possible that it was lol i tend to sit on my foot sometimes
it feels a little on the hard side??
that can do it
little tender to touch??
when your muscle contracts..as with a spasm, it will feel harder than when it is relaxed
it can also be a bit warm
no, no redness no warmth
just sore :(
tender to touch too
I really think it sounds like you have been experiencing muscle spasms... could be due to any of the above mentioned reasons... I do not think that you are having any kind of reaction to the Zpac... I know from many of our previous conversations that you tend to over- worry, and I think that you may be doing that now.( If you had a blood clot you would have pain and redness.. swelling). I hope this brings you some peace of mind:-)
it does :) thank you :) it dosnt seem red at all, ive been checking it now and then. i just wasnt sure where it came from. Because its not something ive ever experienced, at least not like that. I just wasnt sure if it was the medication or not. I didnt thnk about my foot until later; I think ill go relax and massage it, get it to loosen up.. thank you :) OH! been referred to a Neruo surgeon too in Boston so. I go for the consult soon
I am glad... please let me know how the appointment goes.
i will i promise :) Neuro referred me to the pain clinic too. have the opthamologist on wed so, we shall see how it all goes. i promise to keep you updated :) thank you so much for everything
You are very welcome:-)
heading to bed.. need to be up in like 5 hours :-p have a good night/morning cam :)
thank you for the peice of mind :)
