Anaphylaxis attack after taking CIPRO
(Baytown, TX, USA)
The first time I took CIPRO was for a UTI about 4 months ago, the symptoms I presented were pain in my muscles (couldn't move my right shoulder for about 3 weeks, very tired, spasms in my body, neck problems, confusion, blurred vision, etc) I never attributed my symptoms to CIPRO, went for MRI's and lots of Xrays and nothing was found.
Second time I took CIPRO for a UTI again, about a month ago, I started having symptoms of overall tiredness and muscle pain (even for chewing gum), in my 4th dosis I started having a anaphalaxis attack, my blood pressure lowered, my heart race went to 145, had difficulty breathing, the ER dr prescribed my with corticosteroids and my primary dr gave a Epipen prescription in case if that happens again but of course I am highly allergic to this antibiotic.
I am left with lots of anxiety that become panic attacks if I don't control them. I am really frustrated and wondering when my side effects are going to be gone, I want to have a normal life. No muscle problems anymore, just anxiety, lots of it.
