Is Cipro Damage Reversible?
I took cipro 500 mg for 7 days twice daily in Aug 2011. By November I started having joint pain in my knees, hips, neck, ankles. In February 2012, I spontaneously suffered severe tendonitis to my right wrist and thumb. 2 weeks ago, in July 2012...I spontaneoiusly began to feel extreme tightness in my right knee..which led to my kneecap moving and popping and causing extreme pain and mobility problems, now can barely walk, or straighten my knee...
And this week....both ankles are beginning to feel tight and inflexible. Ive been in PT for my wrist since March 2012...and still have pain and usage problems...its not better.
I am terrified I am going to eventually be unable to walk...I was a very healthy 57 year old when this all began. Eat well..vegetarian, raw food...not overweight, no smoking or drinking or drug use...walked for exercise so as to not hurt joints...now, with all Ive done, I feel like Im going to be totally disabled and unable to walk....I made the one mistake of not researching cipro before I took it...and now it feels as if my tendons are disconnecting one by one..
..is this damage reversible...and what can be done to fix cipro damaged tendons..and...is there a doctor who acknowledges this and treats people like me?
I so appreciate any suggestions or info...cipro has completely ruined my life and the lives of countless of others...there must be something we can do...
