Clicking In My Neck From Levaquin

by Jane T.
(Ohio, U.S.A.)

I was prescribed Avelox for Legionnaires Pneumonia on November 26, 2012, which was diagnosed by a staff doctor at a Dayton, Ohio hospital. I was in the hospital for four days and recuperated several weeks at home. I took Avelox for three weeks.

I had headaches at the time but drank a lot of water to flush out the drugs. I also was extremely tired. My hair started falling out in January 2013 after taking Cipro for 7 days for a bladder infection. I also noticed more arthritis, clicking in my neck and soreness in the tendons on the right side of my neck. The clicking seems to be getting worse as of March 22, 2013.

I have been taking Nioxin products to stop the hair from falling out and it seems to have stopped. But, I am really worried about my neck.

Clicking is not dangerous
by: Kerri Knox, Registered Nurse

Hi Jane,

Clicking of joints is not dangerous, but it generally is an indication of some weakness of the tendons that can occur after taking these drugs. It definitely sounds as though you experienced some of the typical side effects of the Quinolone Antibiotics.

So, while your symptoms don't sound horrible, they are concerning and you may want to take some measures to strengthen your body and to learn why this happened and how to protect yourself in the future.

So, for your next step, I would recommend that you get my book The Levaquin Tendonitis Solution in order to get you strengthening your weak tendons and get you fixing the nutritional deficiencies that caused you to get these problems in the first place.

Hope to see you on the forums that I provide in the book and hear about your progress.
