Customer Question

I am 68 years old. I have been working out diligently as well as working a full day. Lately I have experienced extreme tightness and pain in both sides of my neck (could have been related to both workout and yoga). I found out that I had a mild form of rosecea and I have been taking 40 mg of antibiotics daily, however, because of stomach distress, I have stopped.
Bot***** *****ne, my body aches, my neck hurts and I have some stomach issues (slight diarrhea). I had a flu shot in September. I do have allergies (mold) and the weather has been rainy and humid.
What seems to be the problem?

Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

These symptoms can be related to the recent antibiotic use.

Medication side effects are the likely explanation.

May take some time to subside gradually.

No specific antidote available.

Tylenol, advil, exercises, physical therapy should be adequate for full recovery.

Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.
