On bactrum for serratia in the nasal cavity. Suffering from Laryngitis. Taking narcotics for orthopedic problems. Is the infection due to prolonged use of antibiotics?

I have serriatia in my nasal cavities and been on bactrum for 20 days and 10 days on Cipro. First the culture came back Ecoli. A few days later the culture came back Serratia liquificiens. I have larangytis for 11 months. My whole body aches, and I am on strong narcotics for ortho. issues. Is it possible the bacterial infection is causing the aches and pains or being on antibiotics for so long? What do you suggest?

Thanks for writing to us.
A persistent infection can cause systemic symptoms of body aches like you are having. Taking a healthy diet with moderate amount of exercise and vitamin C supplements can help you. This is likely to subside in 3-5 days.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
