Default Can the antibiotics "Ceftin" or "Flagyl" cause a temporary spike in Small Fiber pain?

Are the antibiotics "Ceftin" or "Flagyl" known for causing a temporary spike (lasting several weeks) in Small Fiber pain?

Thanks!

David

Yes, Flagyl is a known causer of PN. This antibiotic most doctors even know about. Its new cousin Tindamax has a warning on the insert even. Back in 1977 papers like this started appearing on
Flagyl:

Ceftin not so much. I don't recall seeing it on any lists.

Flagyl is definitely a bad one. It can cause problems.
