staph infection and joint pain

Feb 17, 2013

I recently had a skin staph infection. I started antibiotics but continued to get a few more spots. Now I am having mild to severe joint pain. Specifically at the base of my head where it meets my neck. Could the 2 be related? Should I be concerned?

Response from Dr. Holodniy

You should be evaluated by the physician who prescribed the antibiotics for the presumed staph infection as to whether these additional symptoms are related.
