Plagued by Tendonitis since Taking Quinolone Antibiotics
I first experienced tendonitis about 8 yrs ago. At that time it was the Achilles, "tennis elbow" and believe it or not, the ligament in my teeth became sore and loose. All seemed to resolve. In late May of this year, I was hospitalized for acute gastroenteritis (won't mention the restaurant). I was given Avelox intravenously, and cipro by mouth to take after discharge. I have been plaged by tenditis in various body part since about 2 weeks after this therapy.
I stretch, stretch, stretch, on good days....on bad days I can barely move without acute pain. I am an RN working fulltime and it is very difficult to focus and pin-point my patients that need extra help, when I can't get outside my own pain/spasm/tightness. I see a specialist at the beginning of the month. Is there anything anyone can recommend to help get through this!
