Question: I had a spell of acute dizziness that lasted for
2 days. Still feel light-headed and must grasp nearby objects to be able to move. Am taking Levaquin 750 for E. Coli infection. Is this a good choice for me?

Brief Answer:
Yes, Levaquin is a good drug for this!

Detailed Answer:

I have reviewed your information fully and this is a good choice to treat E. coli. I will like to know what you are being treated for. E. coli is a common cause of urinary tract infection but I don't want to assume that's what you are being treated for.

I will suggest you drink much water and control your blood pressure. Also, avoid walking without supporting yourself as you may sustain a fall whish is not a good experience because of possible complications.

I hope this helps. I wish you well. Feel free to follow up with me for more information and clarifications if need be.

I m 16, healthy weight, I exercise regularly (swim), and the only time I ve ever really been sick is a urinary tract infection. But I feel like I have a heavy weight on my chest where my heart is. I can t take deep breaths and I feel a dull throbbing pains all over (especially joints) but concentrated in the upper part of my heart. My upper back (like behind my heart) hurts and also my left side by the ribs. I feel really anxious, and it s been like this for almost three days now. I can t calm down, and even if i m smiling and happy it still hurts. I had to leave school friday because in class I had short breaths like I was struggling to breath. I can do normal activities just fine only difference is the dull throbbing pain. Is this serious? Do I need to go to a doctor? can you diagnose me?

Hi, I have Addison s disease and type 1 diabetes. I feel like I m getting a UTI. My blood sugar levels keep creeping up (in the 150s or higher, closer to 200, rather than my normal in high 90s or low 100s). Which comes first? The UTI infection, or the blood sugar going up? In other words, does the diabetes cause me to have more infections, or do the infections cause my blood sugar to go up?
