For your own safety ring 111 for advice. It could!c be the infection that as caused your increased pain and lack of energy.

Thank you I will !

I was, also, a lot worse with flucloxacillin, and it turned out that it interacted with one of my other medications. I stopped it, and then saw my GP who prescribed a different anti-biotic, and I was fine. I am not saying you should stop it without advice, but do make sure your GP surgery know you have had an adverse reaction to an anti-biotic, if that is the case.

Thank you ! X

It is important to keep taking the recommended dose of any antibiotic until the course is finished. Failure to finish the course can leave the bacteria active and resistant to the antibiotic. More pain for you later.

It could be a reaction from the other meds you're taking. Hope you call your Dr and feel better.
