I just started taking Metronidazole 2 weeks ago. I take it once a month 2 days in a row, a total of 1000mg. The side effects are horrible: I can't eat, I have the worst headaches but the scariest part is that my feet and my legs hurt so bad that now I have difficulty walking. I also noticed that my hands and forearms are beginning to hurt as well. Has anyone else experienced this?

I stopped after 2 days. It was too scary. I switched to Alinia instead.

You are having a bad herx from it.  This abx is breaking open the cyst form so the other abx can attack what is hiding in the cyst form.

If you're only taking it for two days at a cycle, I would try to stick with it if at all possible, but talk to your doc about it.  JMHO.

Thank you for the replies. I'm seeing my doctor in a week so we'll see what he thinks, but if the benefits outweigh the pain I'm willing to wait it out.
