Nitrofurantoin mono mac side effects

I am taking this medication for a UTI. I have been on it for a day and a half. This morning I was suddenly wakened by a loud sound in my ears (sounded like birds chirping), and a stinging pain across my face, down my spine into my arms and legs - worse on my left side than on my right. I sat up and walked around and it finally subsided, although it was hard to walk at first. It felt like my muscles didn't want to respond. I laid back down, as I was very tired, and in about a half hour it happened again, only worse. I am now up and looking for answers. Could this be from the nitrofurantoin? ## Hi, Sally! I'm not sure, it's hard to say. Some people have experienced some very odd side effects from antibiotics, it's happened to me, so I have to say that it is possible. What ...
