Side effects : Most drugs have the potential to cause an upset stomach - especially antibiotics. Your lump could be strep pain or enlarged lymph nodes. One you finish your course of antibiotics, the upset feeling should pass. Consult with the physician who gave you the antibiotics.

Common: This is unfortunately a common side effect of the medication. Once the medication is finished these side effects will diminish. If this does not occur consult your physician.
