I went to Urgent Care this morning and was diagnosed with a kidney infection (tenderness in the kidneys, frequent urination and nausea.) Given 500 mg Cipro, 2x day. Now I'm having a pretty bad headache. Might this be a complication of the infection? Should I go to emergency? I've taken Cipro in the past with no problems.
I was out of town so I didn't see your question in time to give you the quick answer you were looking for. Headache is listed as a common side effect of Cipro. But I hope by now both the headache and the kidney infection are better. Please let us know if you found a diagnosis and treatment.
