Odd antibiotic side-effects

I was given Augmentin after oral surgery and the side effects went way past simple stomach issues, which I am still suffering from weeks later. As well as nausea, I have been light-headed, dizzy, foggy and shaky. Has anyone else had side-effects such as these? I stopped taking the meds after 5 days but I'm away from my primary health care facility and don't really want to see a local physician.
