I'm on cipro. Ive been trying to differentiate between HERX reactions and adverse reactions. Hard to do.

And have leg pain, muscle spasms, vision issues and much much more. I have decreased my dose to only once a day. I have been on it for 5 days this time.

For those of you that have had previous tendon issues... Can you describe what it feels like?

What did it feel like in the beginning before it got bad?

Was it both sides of the body? Or can it occur in just one site?


Thank you

Currently not treating, looking for a Dr who will work with my insurance lol.

More muscular, cognitive, nerve issues than joints. Facial droop and blurred vision.

It's hard to tell the difference. I pushed through for 4 weeks until I was floxed.

"Much more" makes me very suspicious. My flox-reactions felt like ALL my bodysystems were affected.

Mine started as sciatic pain (lower back), then progressed to wrap around and down my thigh, then down my calf, all the way to my toes. It was a pulling type of pain, that increased in severity over time.

(This was pre-Lyme dx, and I had spent 4 mos on Levaquin for an incurable 'sinus infection', and the morons had me exercising).

It got so bad that they sent me to physical therapy (never once considering it was from the Levaquin they had put me on). I Had no idea it was from the Levaquin until many months later when I came here. I wish I could have sued....

For me it started off aching, but then quickly got VERY painful, to the point that putting any weight on my legs was excruciating -- standing up was hell.

I was worried I had waited too late to stop. My tendon pain did reverse but it took some time and it was pretty worrisome.

I just had to stop it for a UTI infection. My left knee becme so tight and stiff that I could not walk normally . I stpped it and will not risk permanent damage . It happens more commonly in folks 50 plus years age . It can cause serious damage needing surgery to repair tendons .
