Cipro Probably Caused Me to Have Fibromyalgia
by Maggie Mae
I am so distressed reading all of this. Nineteen years ago, I had a hysterectomy and bladder repair. A supra pubic catheter caused a serious UTI. I was prescribed Keflex and Macrobid but had reactions to both. I was then prescribed back to back courses of Cipro.
I felt awful while I was on it, developed ringing in my ears, anxiety, and weakness..then the muscle pain and fibromyalgia symptoms started and never left.
I never recovered, had to eventually stop working and have been on SSD for fourteen years. I doubt if anything could help me or reverse this awful illness after all these years.
I had read before about Cipro causing fibro, and when I mentioned it to my doctor, he said he never heard that..how very sad. I can't say for certain that the Cipro caused all this, but its quite a coincidence.
