Cipro Gave Me Symptoms of Fibromyalgia

(pensacola, fl. usa)

I had no idea until today that Cipro could be the cause of my constant tendon pain, all day everyday although I have been off of it for a couple weeks now. Last week I started to have terrible neck, back, arm and shoulder pain so bad that i cant work or do much lifting.

I have a burning pain all over...CONSTANT!!!

I can hardly take it. Today I decided to look up the medicine to see if it could be having Ciprofloxacin Side Effects and sure enough everything I am experiencing has been listed. I have gone to my doctor once and she says it could be fibromyalgia...

I will go to her again after finding out so much about Cipro.

Sorry to hear that

I'm so sorry to hear about your pain and problems! Ugh! I hate Quinolone Antibiotics. The Ciprofloxacin Side Effects can be really nasty and cause a wide variety of different symptoms. It's speculated that the Symptoms of Fibromyalgia may actually be the consequences of taking these antibiotics- at least in a certain percentage of people.

Certainly the symptoms are similar: Widespread pain and sleep disorders, among many of the similar symptoms. These drugs can be really bad, and I have no doubt that many people diagnosed with 'Fibromyalgia' actually have side effects from the Quinolone Antibiotics. It's really a shame to see so many people suffering from these problems.

I suggest that you take a look at my book The Levaquin Tendonitis Solution since your doctor is not likely to even BELIEVE you that your problems are due to Cipro- let alone have any answers for you...

Good luck and I hope that your doctors appointment goes well for you...

I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia 17 year ago. I had severe pain from shoulders to hands. I took different medication, but had reaction to medication. So, I took naproxen, but it also causes me problem. So, I took Tylenol. So, I learn to deal with pain. Eventually, the pain pretty much disappears. If I got stress out it would mildly appear.

On Dec 19, 2017 I had minor surgery and was give cipro through IV. Couple hours later I start to feel the pain in the lower arm. I did take cipro pills before going to bed. Couple hours later the pain got severe. I did contact the surgical center and inform them that it had trigger my fibro. They told if I had any problem to go to ER. I also stop the cipro.

I saw the surgeon 3 days later for checkup, I inform him that it triggers my fibromyalgia. He didn’t think that I had reaction to the cipro. 6 days later I saw any doctor for follow-up visit. Inform him of my reaction to cipro. He would put it in the medical records. I also, told the surgery coordinator about my reaction to Cipro. Also told her about the 3 pages warning sheet on the drug. Also, how dangerous the drug is.

I am still in pain after 2 weeks.

My sister took cipro and has permanent tendon in her hands after 6 years
