I have been diagnosed with gonnorhea and after almost 2 months I've spoken to a new doctor who has given me a Rocephin IM shot.
I received the shot on Tuesday afternoon, couldn't even feel it! I was fine up until about 7pm when I start feeling a bit tired and got a bit snotty, when I slept I kept waking up every few hours or so. When it got to about 9am, I could hardly move, I felt very weak, I had a cough, a sore throat, my muscles ached and had slight muscle spasms in my shoulders. This dissapeared by about 10oclock and I was fine until about 6pm when I started feeling the same way. When I tried to sleep I just wasn't able to, I was sweating, and the same if not worse symptoms than the night before.
They lasted until about 12pm then I felt fine again. It seems to come in waves and then I feel fine.
Now I'm lying in bed at midnight and feeling a little sick so I thought to see whether these were standard side effects of the rocephin treatment.
I'm also not able to sustain food for very long, after eating any food, I have diarrhoea within an hour or two.
Should I contact my doctor? I'm not allergic to anything (as far as I know)
Or do you think these are just side effects?
