You probably already figured it out, but I had bad joint pain when I took Levoquin for a sinus infection. I only took it for 3 days, due to the joint pain, before my doctor switched me to Biaxin. The joint pain was gone about 2 days after stopping the Levoquin.View Thread
I also have a problem with propylene glycol. I thought I was having a problem with aluminum-based deodorants. As an alternative, I tried a natural one made by Tom's. Unfortunately, the first ingredient in it was propylene glycol and I got a horrible eczema rash. I later found out that I'm allergic to it. My sensitivity isn't too bad...I can use some products with propylene glycol, as long as it's towards the end of the ingredient list. That's lucky for me because, as others have mentioned, propylene glycol is everything.View Thread
I have that issue when I drink certain beer, mostly micro brews. Other beer gives me stomach cramps, diarrhea and a headache. Needless to say, I'm not a big beer drinker I've had severe allergic reactions to a couple other things, which I now avoid like the plague. I usually have my EpiPen on hand somewhere, just in case. I've only had to use it once, but I was really thankful to have it available.View Thread
