For information gathering purposes:
I am interested if you are someone with a connective tissue disorder such as Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, etc. that has taken a strong antibiotic known as a fluoroquinolone.
Recently I took Cipro. Luckily, for just two days. I quickly experienced major tendon and joint pain like I have never felt before. With a little online poking and questioning I came across the term "floxed" and realized there are many people out there that have been affected by Cipro and Levaquin.
If you are someone who has a connective tissue disorder and has taken one of these medications I am interested if this medication either affected you or not.
I would like to know:
what disorders you believe yourself to have
how long did you take it
what symptoms did you experience
how soon did you experience these symptoms
and long did you experience these symptoms
If you have found an alternative antibiotic I am also interested. I am equally interested if these medications had no negative effects.
This information is only being used to possibly write a short article. If I am able to use your information and/or name, please let me know for either. I have no problem with leaving everything anonymous.
Thank you for your time and sharing. I do not wish this horrible experience on anyone.
