Tendonopathies possibly related to Cipro?

by Lisa

Wow! I've just started to become curious as to whether or not all my tendinitis in various areas are attributed to intermittent chronic use of cipro that I have taken off & on for 20 years for UTI's.

I've had severe bursitis to the left trochanter, which unfortunately required surgery about a year ago to remove the bursa; has helped some. I've just been diagnosed with tenosynovitis to the left heel via MRI after about 3 years of foot pain, which was misdiagnosed as plantar fasciitis.

I now have left shoulder/arm pain & had a steroid injection a couple months ago to the bicep tendon diagnosed as tendinitis. The steroid helped for a couple months & it's painful again & may need another MRI. I'm a nurse practitioner & talked to my physician who said she didn't think of my tendonopathies being related to the cipro. I'm starting to think this is a very realistic possibility.

Yep, it's almost certainly related

Hi Lisa,

Yep, they are almost certainly related. If your doctor does not think that tendonopathies are related to the Fluoroquinolone Antibiotics, that is simply because she's not done any of the research. That's because drug reps don't go around from doctor's office to doctor's office teaching them to look for the damaging effects of the Fluoroquinolone Antibiotics!

Anyone who knows about these damaging side effects have had to learn about them on their own, usually because they or someone they know or love has been damaged by them. It's not something that doctor's learn in school. As you well know, it's not something nurses learn either. I only learned about this after I had finally quit nursing.

Not to mention the damage to your gut and microbiota that your doctors have done to you by giving you 20 years of antibiotics! How negligent to never once have a doctor attempt to determine the underlying reason WHY you are getting chronic UTI's, or to use some of the readily available safe natural substances on the market that can prevent UTI's.

For your next step, if you'd like to improve your symptoms, I suggest that you investigate my book
The Fluoroquinolone Toxicity Solution
. It's the result of years-long research into solving the problems caused by these damaging antibiotics. I'll be looking forward to seeing you on our private forums and hearing about your improvements.
