I was prescribed Trimethropin for a UTI. 5 day course. Day 4 I started to get an aching back which over a couple of days crept up my spine and by Saturday morning I couldn't move my neck.
Sunday my left knee was so painful I could barely walk so went to out of hours surgery and he diagnosed a Baker's Cyst and sent me home with some anti imflammatory painkillers.
Monday the right knee did the same so I went to a&e where they said they could see no reason for it but my white blood cell count was double what it should be so wanted to see me the next day. At this point I could barely walk as both feet were swollen and knees unbearably painful.
Tuesday back to a&e, again they could see no reason for the sudden inflammation which had now also started affecting me wrists and thumb. Made me an appt at Rheumatology which I went to today.
They are still stumped but seem to rule out an allergic reaction to Trimethropin. I'm not convinced, I am a usually healthy 35 year old I shouldn't be in this state. They have now prescribed me Steroids which I do not want to take if I can help it.
I feel every sympathy with anyone else going through this and would appreciate anyones comments.
