Could muscle pain, stomach pain, diarrhea and constipation be due to consuming klacid for sinusitis?

I had a bad turn this morning, had a pain in my right arm last few days, thought it was muscle pain. This morning when I woke up, I had cramping pain in my stomach and felt nausea, felt the need to to go to toilet, when I was on the toilet, broke out in a cold sweat, felt light in the head like I was going to pass out, then had an episode of diarrhoea and felt a little better afterwards, felt like I was going to vomit but didn t following episode. i was at the doctors last tues and they put me on klacid for sinusitis for 10 days,I was a bit constipated earlier on in the week, and one morning brought up blood from my chest in my saliva, and trace of blood in my stool, but the doctor on tues did say they believe it could be the constipation causing this. I would appreciate it if you could give me some advice.

Hi, I ve had diarrhea and stomach cramps on 5 separate occasions in the last month but for the last 3 days I ve been waking up from midnight with consistent diarrhea until the morning. By the time the morning comes I am exhausted and can t get myself out of bed for the rest of the day. I suffer from chronic sinusitis and am experiencing that as well at the moment and I wondered if it could be related? Thankyou

I have has stomach problems most of my childhood, but recently these past few years , my stomach has been getting worse , with symptoms like nausea , diarrhea, stomach pain, constipation. I ve gone to so many doctors and all they do is X-Ray my stomach or have diagnosed me with ibs. But I don t think that s the problem. Could it be some internal problem? Also this past year I have had random hives on my stomach area .

Hi, I ve been having flu like symptoms for a few weeks. I ve been experiencing diarrhea, constipation, pain in my stomach (stomach gurgling), feeling week, no fever using a thermometer although I feel like I have a fever, sweaty, feeling of nausea (like I want to vomit). It s been mostly affecting me on the weekends but goes away during the week. I m not on any diet or taking any meds aside from anti-depressants. I was wondering if it is possible to experience a flu for weeks but have it come and go? Or else could it be something else?

Im on birth control, and had a normal period last month March 26th. I ended up having to go out of town the very next day, While out of town I had a very bad sinus infection resulting in a 10 day round of Augmentin, my last dose was on April 14th or 15th.. I arrived home on April 16th and have been sexually active ever since. I was due to start my placebo pills the week of April 20th. I never got it. Now I have low back pain, occasional heart burn, and tummy pressures. Is it possible that I ovulated late and possible became pregnant? Ive also had 3 neg dollar store tests.

I have had the flu for over a week, so my dr gave me antibiotics 2 days ago. I have just blown my nose and the mucus has blood in it from one side of my nose. This has never happened before. I do have allergy and sinus issues and I have been blowing my nose a lot .

I went to the Doctor's today. I was diagnosed with a minor sinus infection, but I have a resting heart rate of about 120bpm and I'm having a little difficulty breathing. Plus, I can't sleep... I know I should be exhausted, seeing that I haven't hardly slept in the last three days. Maybe a max of five hours last night, other than that two or three hours.
