I took the antibiotic Metrogyl for a bacterial vaginosis infection. It was a 7-day course which I completed four days back. Since then, I have had a tingling sensation in my hands and feet and a sort of achy numbness in my arms and legs. I had a blood test a week ago for something else and it all came back negative for liver, kidneys, HIV, thyroid etc. I am very concerned about this symptom and wondered if it could be linked to the antibiotic?
Welcome to icliniq.com.
Regarding your concern, I would explain that your symptoms could be related to Metronidazole adverse effect. You should know that this drug can cause neuropathy as a possible adverse effect. For this reason, I recommend consulting with your attending doctor and performing a nerve conduction study (electroneurography) to investigate for this possible disorder.
I would also recommend performing inflammation tests (PCR, sedimentation rate) and blood electrolytes in order to investigate for possible electrolyte imbalance. You should discuss with your doctor on the above tests.
