Avelox Caused Crippling Tendon Injury

by FootPain

Four months ago, both my ankles suddenly swelled up like elephant legs after I had taken 3 seven-day courses of Avelox over a 5 week period along with Ibuprofen. Antibiotics prescribed for severe dental infection after dental treatment unsuccessful and standard dental antibiotics began to become ineffective. My right ankle gave way entirely and I am unable to bear weight.

Bleeding underneath the skin at inside of my ankle. In addition, both hands become numb almost every night. Two "foot and ankle specialist" surgeons have been dismissive and gotten me out of their offices. When I mentioned Avelox to one he said, "What't that?" Physical therapist said he has seen this before. After three months I had begun to have slight ability to bear a little weight on injured foot when walking with walker, but second surgeon performed series of vigorous "range of motion tests" on the foot before dismissing me with "foot pain."

Since then, severe debilitating pain has returned. Foot feels broken. Cannot bear weight. "Specialist" concluded with supposed "diagnosis" -- get this one, 'FOOT PAIN!'
