I was diagnosed with an UTI/possible kidney infection 3 days ago, i was prescribed cipro and after 1 dose had an allergic reaction (neck muscles were so sore and burning that i couldn't stand it & my head had that feeling when you get when your upside down/bent over too long and come up too fast and that throbbing pain you get @ the base of your skull - had to go to the emergency room) so they said i was having an allergic reaction to the cipro, then they put me on Macrobid. I've been on macrobid for 2 days now and BOTH days i felt pretty good all day (a tad drowsy) but all in all not too bad, well then about 5 or 6 rolls around and i get the chills so bad that nothing makes it better unless i take motrin and until the motrin kicks in nothing helps, not a scalding hot shower, not a sweatsut & 3 blankents....nothing....btw....its 85 degrees and super humid here and i even turn of the air conditioner and all the fans (my poor family). Could someone please tell me if i should be worried that it's medication or is it possible that i'm just still really sick???View Thread
