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.
