Fatigue, malaise, weight loss, low grade fever. ASO screen >400. On oral amoxicillin, 10 days. No better. What needs to be checked next? What tests?
Strep test: Did you have earlier ASO titer which then documented rise of ASO? If you truly had strep infection which was not sensitive to Amoxil (amoxicillin) there are plenty of others available. Your doc should speak to the ID maven at your local hospital and ask for advise on treatment in your particular zone. ...Read more
29 yr. Old male with history of hypothyroid & has severe head cold and chest congestion since dec. Muscle weakness and fatigue. Is amoxil (amoxicillin) best route?

On augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) for 10 days last dosage yesterday.Can this cause fatigue, muscle aches, joints to hurt, anxiety- been reading nasty stuff from patients?
Need more info: This is not likely to be due to augmentin, (amoxicillin and clavulanate) but allergic reactions may take strange forms. The question is why were you on antibiotics, was the diagnosis correct, do you have something else going on at the same time, etc.? If this keeps up please go see a good family practitioner or internist and get diagnosed and treated. Good luck. ...Read more

Sore throat, headache, neck pain, malaise, & fatigue x15 days. Neg. strep test, no fever. Taking amoxicillin w/no help. Possible causes?
Needs work-up: For symptoms that are ongoing like that- I think of several possibilities. One would be mono- and that's an easy one (mono-spot test). Not sure if you have risk factors for HIV but I would test you for that too. Other viruses such as enterovirus or adenovirus could cause these symptoms, but usually not this long. REST may help you. Would check back with doc prescribing Amoxicillin-probably stop it ...Read more
