Knots in my Arms after Taking Cipro
I took Cipro for a UTI just a few weeks ago. Over the last couple of days I have been suffering from pain in my upper arm muscles (deltoids?) in both arms. It feels like I have knots forming there, and I have never in my life experienced knots in my arms before.
I am in my 30's, and have always been healthy... not obsessively healthy, but I do try to make healthy choices when planning meals, and I spend my days chasing after 4 kids, so there is no time for just sitting around here! Plus, I do try to walk for 30 minutes at least 3 times a week for exercise, and I swim. I have always had strong arms and shoulders.
Could the knots and pain be caused from the Cipro? It's really making my life hell, because I have a toddler and a four year old who both want to be held and loved on, and it is hard for me to pick them up now. I also have two older children who require my attention, and it's just hard to give it to them when I hurt all the time.
I need answers from someone who will take me seriously when I mention my suspicions that this pain might be from the Cipro. A doctor will just blow me off and put me on ibuprofen without even considering that Cipro could cause my problems. I don't know if it could be the cause or not, but I need someone to at least consider the thought...
Thanks for listening.
