I just finished a 14 day round of Amoxicillin, I have had cronic pain in my hip, leg, knee and elbow all on the left side of my body. I googled if Amoxicillin could cause pain, and in Female patients over 50 is it highly likely. I think I would rather suffered out the soar throat and stopped up ears. I am praying that this pain leaves my body, it has been 24 hours since my last dose, and the pain is not as bad as it has been.

cephalexin and clindamyacin
I would've had mine taken out, and saved tens of thousands, and a lot of pain. Actually wanted them removed and done with, but dentist tend not to want to do that. They would rather milk each tooth for every cent they can get out of it.
