Hi everyone I,m just wondering have any of you responded to antibiotics ?? Two weeks ago I asked my GP to give me antibiotics in desperation really ... I,m still waiting on a diagnosis , and just thought it would be worth a try ,and my GP agreed ..Since taking them my fatigue and pressure headache have improved ,but still having problems with my eyes .. I,ve also noticed my pains and aches have increased but could be unrelated ... Its possible I have an underlying infection somewhere but I,d love to know if anyone else felt better on antibiotics ?? I have only one day of tablets left and I,m dreading thoughts of the terrible fatigue coming back .
Increase of aches and pains with antibiotics is very common. They are inflammatory in nature. Generally rheumies avoid the use of abx when they can because they aggravate so many autoimmune conditions
