MRSA Question (urgent)
Started by Scott
Posted: November 28, 2007 at 09:36
Hi.

I recently spent 5 days in the hospital with an MRSA infection on my leg. It was nasty and extremely painful. I was put on Vancamycin (sp?) and released after 6 days. It has been 3 weeks since that time, and I have just finished my last dose of Bactrim yesterday. The actual wound is healing up for the most part (was able to stop re-packing a few days ago), and now that I am off the daily antibiotics, my energy is starting to come back.

Anyways, yesterday I started to get this weird sensation in my mouth. Underneath my tongue, at the very back-left, an incredible soreness is developing. I mean, if I move my tongue at all or swallow - it hurts, bad. This is not a sore throat. I obviously know what that feels like and this is not that. My gums are a little swollen also, but that could be something totally separate. Who knows.

So, this leads me up to my stupid question. Can you develop an MRSA sore on your tongue or inner-mouth between gums/tongue and throat? If so, that's a scary thought. Is it possible? I hope it's just a weird anomoly. Can anyone offer me confort, or at least clear things up for me? :)

Thanks.

MRSA is like gulf war illness. You may have to stay on antibiotis for a year. You need to eat well and get plenty of rest.

Dear Scott
You need to visit your doctor to investigate the discomfort in your mouth. It is possible for you to contract an infection such as MRSA, equally there may be side effects from medication you are taking. Only your GP will be able to do the necessary tests to diagnose the cause of the discomfort.

NHS Direct offer a helpline regarding medical advice, their number is 0845 4647.

Our website gives information on MRSA and other infections, visit http://mrsaactionuk.net

In answer to your question. Yes. You most definitely can get mrsa in your mouth. You can get it anywhere. On your legs, your arms, head, mouth, hands, feet, INSIDE OF YOU< your lungs, heart, blood system! This is a very serious disease that you can get anywhere and is very had to get rid of. I'm going through it now for the third time. Twice on my legs and now on my side. On a stretch mark no less just to add to the pain. Get your mouth looked at. ASAP. And I wish you a safe swift PERMANENT recovery

YES! MRSA csn be in your tongue & throat, thats where my infection was. MRSA is
an "infection of opportunity". It will present itself in areas of vulnerability, esp on
skin cuts/sores.

Consider this, however, im thinking they had you on vancomyacin for your original
infection. Vanco is the big guns of antibiotics. A side effect of antibiotics is the
killing off of good and bad bacteria. This causes yeast infection. Yeast overgrowth
in the mouth is called thrush or oral candida. Its a fungal infection. You could have
mrsa or thrush. Its important to find out which one bc mrsa will require more
antibiotics, but thrush will be made worse by more antibiotics. Thrush is a fungal
infection and youll need a script for something called "miracle mouthwash" to treat
thrush.

I'm so sorry you are dealing with this horrible infection. Check out the site below.
Just click enter. I've had several friends who were suffering from MRSA and all the
terrible effects of this infection. And after 9-12 months of antibiotics and no
resolution, they found pHenomenal and within 4-6 weeks a miraculous change. DO
NOT BELIEVE ME. Look for yourself. It could very well be exactly what you need.

http://www.thephsecret.com Hit Enter and get informed.

pHenomenal Water is one of the only products out there that has a proven track
record against defeating MRSA. They say " The most expensive thing you'll ever own
is a closed mind " And that is sooooo true. http://www.thephsecret.com

Don't believe me. Learn for yourself.
