Quit taking Cipro the week before last
(Jersey shore, pa. Usa)
Hi there. I was put on Cipro for a uti. I was only to take it for 3 days 2 pills each day. I took a total of 3 pills before I started having symptoms of tendonitis in my left ankle. My left knee has been hurting as well, but I'm not sure if that has anything to do with Cipro or just it hurting since it likes to do that. I have history of my left knee cap slipping out of place and going back in, so I don't know. However, this was Friday the 14th at night that I quit taking cipro and I'm still having issues. The other day my whole leg even felt weak and everything and I felt like I had issues controlling how my ankle was moving and things like that. The pain isn't constant and I don't notice a pattern like how it says on some sites that periods of inactivity cause it to be worse. Mine just seems random. It can hurt and ache pretty bad at times and other times seem fine and even other times feel cold. Geez...this is getting long. The thing is, I don't have insurance. Should I go see the dr even if I know it hasn't ruptured? Or, should I just take it easy until the symptoms subside...whenever that may be...and then start stretching and working it out? I just don't want to waste money on going to medexpress if they can't do anything, what's your opinion because I'm sort of at a loss of what to do.
