Disabled by Levaquin Damage
After 4 pills of levofloxacin antibiotic my tendons started to rupture. I couldn't eat, sleep, focus, or concentrate. My memory slipped to a point I didn't feel at all like myself, I was in pain in every part of my body.
Though it was obvious my adverse reaction was caused by this drug there was no help from my doctors. They didn't know what to do for me and I was left to suffer. They had no experience with this type of damage and wanted me to take NSAIDS and Prednisone which are antagonists of this drug.
I am 68 years old, have psoriatic arthritis which is an immune system illness. I take Remicade and Methotrexate for this. I read later that I shouldn't have been given this particular class of antibiotics due to these factors. Which goes to show how much doctors are really informed. It was for a sinus infection which doesn't seem to fit with the class of drug that was designed for the plague.
I also have asthma and am on a steroid inhaler.
I am 15 months out and still have tendon damage. I have also developed a multiple chemical sensitivity that I didn't have before.
I wasn't told of the kinds of adverse reactions someone of my age and with my existing conditions might face.
I believe I have mitochondrial/DNA damage as a result of this drug. Any exertion aggravates the tendons, MCS, and asthma more than ever.
