was prescribed naproxen e.c. 500 mg taken twice daily for a very stiff and sore shoulder. after the first dose, i got extreme double vision and dizziness sending me into walls, two symptoms i get regularly. took two more doses with no improvement. called druggist after looking up the med, and he said double vision, etc, was a very rare side effect. am now taking ibuprofen 400 mg 3Xday. has anyone had worsening symptoms from taking a med for another ailment? not totally sure what to think.... linda

Hey Linda,

Just about evey antibiotic makes me sick. They tend to make me dizzy.  I love that!  NOT.  I am not sure but it seems that we with lesions maybe be more sensitive to meds and their side effects.  I hope you are feeling better soon.

I was wondering this as well. I was taking a muscle relaxer and had a huge increase in numbness in hands and feet.
