Has it changed or improved any yet?

It sounds like you were having some type of reaction to the Metronidazole, as even the common side effects to using it topically are usually just localized at the application site.

It's been about a year since I took the antibiotics. I still occasionally get tingling in my left foot (it's the same as when I took the Metronidazole. I don't know if I had any other side affects from it, but I still have remnants of those side effects. I should have stopped taking it the second I had ANY tingling in my body but I persisted.

Still, it's not that often, and it goes away usually. But if I had known I would never have taken it..

Hi guys,

I used Metronidazole for 5 days, 2 capsule per day and each capsule is 500 mg. I have a horrible pain in all of my bones and joints. also, I have nausea and pain in my chest and my back, my shoulders and especially back of my neck and head. I am wondering if anyone can help me about this? does anyone else have these symptoms? I want to know are there the side effects of Metronidazole? Please help me.

Yes I took this for 7 days and I had to retake another dose of it. I experience tingling throughout my whole body. But now I only feel it in my feet. I'm praying daily that God deliver me from this and I'm praying for you as well.

It has been over a month and I'm still dealing with the tingling, but it varies in intensity. Some time during the day I don't feel it, then it returns. I believe that eventually it will stop returning. I'm dealing with also feeling lightheaded/dizzy/spacey and off balanced when I'm walking; along with back and joint pain. I really need some encouragement. When will this stop, is there something I should be taking or doing to speed up the process?

Hi. It's been 6 weeks since I stopped taking flatly and still experiencing intermittent tingling in hands and feet. Some numbness too. Lately my feet hurt a little. How are you doing.

I took Metronidazole for 5.5 days. Tingling started on one side of the face, then numbness, then severe headache, then arms and legs numbness, then tingling everywhere, then burning senstation. The drug messed up with my facial muscle, so my teeth shifted, bite is off, ended up with teeth being grind down to fix the bite, wear retainer 24/7 to prevent teeth shifting, and a night guard. OMG! Have stopped taking the durg for a little over 3 days but the tingling on the face and body is still there and the headache is still there but not as bad. Was told to go to the ER but saw an NP instead and she suggested Benedryl. I'm scared that the tingling and the headache will never go away.

Don't take anything other than PROBIATICS to restore your good flora. This med works to kill bacterias, parasites & my amoebas but it messes you up so much. The metallic taste can be masked with any peppermint candy or other gum you choose but when people talk about messing with your nervous system that's real scarey. I was very dizzy & dishoriented the entire 14 days & also I fainted once but husband was there to hold me,
. Hope I never have to take this again EVER!!

I took Metronidazole for 3 weeks in August. My last dose was at the begging of September. I have constant brain fog, dizziness, pain in neck, tingling all over my body. I can no longer work or even leave my bed most days. Im so depressed i used to be such ab n acitive bubbly person. Im scared i will be stuck like this forever. I have an MRI next week but i have seen multiple doctors and specialist and none gave any information. I was wondering if anyone has delt with this. If they think its a side effect of the medication... will i ever be able to be normal again? Its just getting worse someone please help.

Hi Dani
I know exactly what you talking about. Took flagyl (metrodinazole) over a year ago. And im fighting still. I hope you are healing better then me?
This is metrodinazole toxicity. It destroys The nerves and causes neuropathy and brain nerve damage.
People can heal, but it can take a long time. Some heal over months, some over a year and some over years. And some dont. This is The scariest thing i have been through. The hardest thing is when doctors dont belive. They say its just anxiethy. But from beeing a healthy person, and then take flagyl and have so much going on in The body, thats flagyl causing it.
Did your mri showed anything?

No my mri showed nothing and infact things have just progressivly gotten worse for me. When it forst started out i didn't have much nerve pain now its wide spread. My anxiety, depression, amd brain fog have sky rocketed. Everyday is a constant battle not to give in and take my own life. My dad passed last week on top of my health issues and all I can think about is I'm only 26. I don't have kids yet or a carrier. I was just starting out in life and now I probably never will get to experience those things. Sorry this isn't more helpful or hopful been in a pretty dark place lately. I pray you find relief.

Hi Dani
I know exactly hope you feel. I struggle to, some days i just wished i died instead off all this going on. It is a nightmare. Im so sorry for your loss off your father. I cant even think how painful it is, that you have to go through that to, with all this going on in the body.
Im so sorry. Do you have family or friends to support you in all this?

Have you gotten better? I found this just trying to figure out why I have such anxiety. I took flagyl 3 months ago and am hoping to get out of this tunnel!

I took metronidazole for 7 days, twice a day. At first, I didn't link the symptoms I was having with the tablet - half way into the treatment I started having all these symptoms:. Tingling/burning sensation all over my body (especially arms and legs) , low grade fever, difficulty swallowing, furry tongue, mild diarreah, dry mouth and lots of anxiety - it has been a week after I finished my treatment and I'm still experiencing side effects. It has been awful. Some symptoms come and go during the day. Doctor prescribed prednisone because he thought it was some allergic reaction and I have been getting slightly better. Still experiencing the tingling sensation (especially in my arms) and diarrhea. Everything else seems to have improved. Praying it gets better. Be well!
