Fibromyalgia is Worse After Taking Levaquin
(st augustine fl)
I am at my wits' end! I took a full 10 days of levaquin. I didn't have a shoulder problem beforehand. I swim laps on a regular basis and as soon as my bronchitis was better, I began to swim again. After the 2nd day of swimming, I noticed shoulder pain. That was a week ago. I now can't raise my arm to get clothes off of hangers, get dishes out of cabinets and have shooting, jabbing pain all night that keeps me awake. The pain was so diffuse that I couldn't tell where it was coming from. It entails my shoulder, muscles and sharp, electric pains radiate down my arm. I can't even touch the tricep/bicep muscles they are so tender.
I'm furious that there are drugs like this on the market. I know contacting the FDA is a joke because I have tried that with another drug a family reacted severely to and they weren't interested. I already have Fibromyalgia Syndrome
. I can barely keep my eyes open, am weak, and lethargic. The fibro has gotten so much worse and I feel like I have flu symptoms from head to toe! In fact, it's safe to say that I have increasing symptoms widespread each day! Am due to have knee surgery and if this keeps up, I will have to postpone for the 2nd time. HELP!
