Hi,
Welcome to JA and thanks for this question. Im sorry to hear about your symptoms. Now leg pain or pains/aches in the muscles or joints is a common side effect of cefdinir, numbness is not a common side effect. Numbness can be a consequence of the lyme disease itself or it can also be due to electrolyte imbalances etc.

However to simply answer your question, yes muscle pain/leg pain is a common side effect of the antibiotic however numbness is not a common side effect.

Do you have any more questions?Please leave a POSITIVE rating by clicking on the stars above, until you do i am not compensated for my time. You can continue to ask follow-up questions even after the POSITIVE rating. You can also ask questions from me directly by going on the link below,

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
