I don't know, but I'm sorry to hear you are going through this.
I just came off a wicked flare and the GI tried Flagyl and Cipro. Both gave me horrible back aches, joint pain, etc. He finally tried levaquine and I was able to tolerate those. Is it worth you asking for an alternate medication?
As for headaches, can you take anything else? I work with someone who has bad migraines. She takes a tylenol, an asprin and washes them down with a coke. The caffine in the coke helps the blood flow, letting the medications get to where they need to be. That lets the tylenol and asprin do their tricks
