Since starting Doxycycline in January, my legs, knees, ankles and feet seem to be intent upon feeling more tingly than ever before, and have a burning pain.  Thankfully it is not all the time - seems to come and go, and heat helps.  Does anyone know if Doxy could be the cause of this?  My LLND thinks it is a herx, and I hope he's right...
 
Thanks,

Hi Razzle,

I've been having more leg pain than usual too, and I started Doxy in January. But I don't have burning pain....more joint pain, stabbing pains, and tingly/numbness. I see my LLMD this Saturday, and will ask him about it.

Feel better soon!

I get leg pain, stabbing pains and tingling and numbness when I use Doxy. Its the only antibiotic so far for me
that has brought on most of the pain, rage, angry feelings, more fatigue.
Doxy is not a favorite of mine for causing so much discomfort.

Razzle, I had the same reaction after starting my latest round of antibiotics (Zith/Rifmpin). My left leg especially was very tingly and felt like it was asleep all of the time. It's getting better now though.

Hi Razzle,

I asked my LLMD today about leg pain with doxy and he says it's quite common, especially joint pain.

I hope you're feeling better now!
