... fever, red skin, bloodshot eyes, dark urine and now, what seems to be the last remaining symptom, a numb and tingling sensation in my lower legs and left wrist. Is this common with an allergic reaction and will the numbness and tingling go away? It is really uncomfortable and painful at times. The only way I can alleviate it is by elevating my legs or lying down. It's been 3 days since the initial reaction and I immediately stopped taking the medication
Some of these symptoms are not an allergic reaction, but side effects. The rash may have been allergy, but not the other things. The med will have to be totally out of your system before all the symptoms go away. This could take another day or so, with perfect kidney function. Sulfa drugs can cause some serious adverse reactions in some people. It will be best to avoid them in the future. Your doc and pharmacy need to be made aware of the reaction. There are a few other meds that are sulfa drugs, and they could cause the same reaction.
