See your doctor: If it persists, this should be evaluated as dr. Williams recommended. A rheumatologist may be helpful. Rheumatologists diagnose and treat arthritis, and bone and autoimmune diseases.

Yes levaquin (levofloxacin): Quinolone antibiotics (Levaquin (levofloxacin)) may have the side effect of joint aches and pain and to a lesser extent but of greater consequence tendon rupture (achilles' tendon being the most common). These side effects are uncommon but you need to be aware of.

I got a bite on my hand 5 days ago. Today my neck is stiff, my hand is still swollen, my hand hurts and yellow pus is coming out of my hand?

Treatment needed now: A hand bite can become a severe infection. If there are any signs of infection, antibiotic treatment is needed. For a bad infection or a rapidly progressing one, hospitalization for I.V. Antibiotics and/or surgery may be needed.

Ring finger/hand pai: May be ulnar nerve irritation or a form of thoracic out let syndrome. If you rub your elbow it may elicit the pain which may help in diagnosis. Also may have elements of carpal tunnel with pain on wrist flexion. Check that both wrist pulses are present, as, if not and have cold hands it is a medical emergency. Would follow up with doc /orthopedist.

Tendonitis: If your ctr has improved your night pain, numbness and tingling in your hand, etc.; but not completely, give it more time it usually gets better w/ time. If u have had no improvement this would be unusual and other dx. Should be considered including radicular pain from a pinched nerve in the neck. Tennis elbow can co-exist w/ cts and confuse the picture. See your ors for evaluation.

Rest it for 48 hrs &: Take some NSAID like Ibuprofen (if your stomach can handle it). If getting worse then definitely see your pcp/orthopod.

See doctor: It is possible that the bite wound is infected and you may need antibiotic treatment. If you can not see your doctor, go the emergency room of the nearest hospital. Ask about taking rabies and tetanus vaccination, also.
