Hi Steven. What happens when you take Cipro?  AK

So it seems you are describing two different kinds of side effects: CNS and allergic. That's unfortunate. For your interest, one of our members described permanently losing his ability to balance at night after antibiotics, which would seem like a neurotoxicity. It's good you didn't have permanent impairment.

 

It would be good if you would add a description to the thread about antibiotics. It might be useful to someone else one of these days. At your discretion.

Here's the link to the story of the patient who reportedly had loss of balance from antibiotics.

I just saw your video on surgery and am very interested.  I've weighted the risks and am sure that I'd prefer to take the gamble.  I've done all the books, diets, etc.  I've read "headache in the pelvis" backwards and forwards.  For me, the feeling of the bacterial infection is as bad as the pain itself.  I hate the clammy feeling, the lethargy, nausea, chills, loss of appetite.  I am tired of telling physicians that I want this thing removed and have them view me amusement.  I'm still relatively young and would rather do it now, than later.

I will comment on the antibiotic board.

Have a look at Gerry's prostatitis video. You may find some common elements.

I am glad you found relief from the prostatitis and infection symptoms. It was a mircle of relief for me! Improvement continued over several years so that I am 100% symptom free now.
