Tight Tendons After Taking Cipro for 30 Years

by Diana

I have been taking cipro for 30 years or more, I have been having debilitating pain in my tendons, atrophy in my feet and tendons, I just quit my job of 14 years, because I'm in debilitating pain, fatigue, I have to get massages to improve the pain, which helps a little, every single massage therapist has told me repeatedly, that my tendons are unusually tight, I've had dopplers, exrays, blood test, more xrays and dopplers for 10 years, and no explanation, and no relief!

I need to find a physician in my area that is able and willing to determine the cause is from cipro, I believe now that it is.

30 years

30 years of taking Cipro would almost undoubably destroy your tendons. Good luck finding a doctor that will determine this, but that will be unlikely to help you since doctors cannot help that problem since they prescribe drugs and surgery and this problem cannot be helped with drugs and surgery.

I fear for what your gut bacteria and your gut absorption looks like after 30 years of destroying the bacteria in your gut with antibiotics. Yipes. I don't know the circumstances behind why you are being prescribed chronic antibiotics, however, I hope the risk is worth the benefits. Antibiotics should be prescribed for confirmed bacterial infections, and the Fluoroquinolones should only be prescribed when no other antibiotics are available that will work.

I'm sorry for your health issues. Unfortunately, your story is not unique and there are thousands of people in your predicament.
