Cipro and joint problems

Common Questions and Answers about Cipro and joint problems

cipro

Avatar m tn ), I have places that almost look like little healed scars on the head of my penis, and there is some discoloration. I have also been having vision problems, joint problems, and it kinda looks like a blister on my tonsils. I suggested to my doc today that maybe it's an antibiotic resistant strain and he told me to just wait it out because there were no antibiotic resistant strains in Georgia. I think that I should definitely change doctors. Does anyone have any advice?
Avatar m tn Since taking Levequin in 2005 for a week for a Mastoid infection and having a severe arthritic reaction, I've had increasing bouts of joint pain. It settles in familiar places but can be the worst in my hip and knees. Prior to that I had never had a joint pain. This week, I can't go to work as I can barely walk. I'm on a strict diet of anti-inflammatory foods and expect to spend 10 minutes to get to the top of my stairs. It's been debilitating.
Avatar n tn There a large degree of risk with this medication, although it is inarguably very effective with certain types of bacterial infections. Muscle and joint aches and pains which are long-lasting and very discomfiting and the primary side effects.
Avatar m tn I told the doc that I was sick with a fever and that my prostate was killing me and that I had left flank discomfort... he prescribed Cipro 500mg for 3 weeks... a couple of days after the Cipro I felt much better. Prostate was under control and left flank discomfort was still noticeable but better. The doc also ordered another full STD panel with urine sample - all of which returned negative.
Avatar m tn I have read on the internet of some who have had awful body and joint pain after taking Cipro. You might want to investigate some of those comments (do a search on Cipro side effects to find). I seems that some got relief to a certain extent from detoxing. However, RA and Lupus as well as some other auot-immune diseases do not always reveal themselves in your blood work. It can take time for it to show positive. Keep asking for testing. Good luck!
Avatar f tn Two weeks after completing the Cipro, it came back and I did another round of Cipro. Two more weeks has passed after the past round of Cipro and I started having severe joint pain again but this time is was all over my body, with fever, and then developed kidney pain and feeling like I am getting another urinary tract infection, but it never burns to urinate. I just feel swollen. I am waiting for my doctor to call me back and decide if I need to see a specialist as Urethritis runs in my family.
Avatar m tn Penicillin, ampicillin, cefotaxime are a similar drug class Cephaloporins and penicillin type drugs, and levofloxacin and cipro are also in their own drug class (quinolones) while vancomycin is a diffierent drug class. Let me know what I can help you with. Or if I answered your question.
242516 tn?1368223905 risk of tendinitis and tendon rupture is further increased in those over age 60, in kidney, heart, and lung transplant recipients, and with use of concomitant steroid therapy. Physicians should advise patients, at the first sign of tendon pain, swelling, or inflammation, to stop taking the fluoroquinolone, to avoid exercise and use of the affected area, and to promptly contact their doctor about changing to a non-fluoroquinolone antimicrobial drug.
Avatar m tn Over the weekend i had been at my worst.. The fatigue was unbearable and joint and muscle pain was relentless... He wasnt quite sure what was going on so he referred me to a specialist... But in the meantime he gave me some diazapa. To help my muscles and a 7 day course of antifungal... I think its called fluexanol or something... Well omg i feel so much better.. This morning i woke up and almost all my symptoms were gone.. I had a normal day for the first time in 6 months...
Avatar m tn I had a bladder infection and was given cipro during the treatment I started to get pain in my joints in both my hands in my middle knuckles as well as in my ankles. There is no swelling but the pain persist all day in my hands mostly. I am 44 and no one in my family suffered from any for of arthritis or MS .... any idea ?????
Avatar n tn I know in previous responses you have said to accept the test results and I have tried to but I keep getting more health problems which commenced from this period of stupidity in my life. Currently, I am about 8/9 weeks into something resembling polyarticular arthritis.
Avatar f tn I have had problems in the past from cipro and levaquin.the doctor prescribed them for bronchitis along with predinisone which is a no-no(so i've read)I never knew four years ago that bad things could come from using this medicine.without my knowledge they used these medicines for emergency purposes(I had respiratory failure)in july and now my lungs have recovered but my body is numb,weak and tingly plus I have sore throats.
Avatar n tn But after reading about all these fatal short term and long term side effects (tendon injury, joint pain, muscle pain) of Cipro i contacted my doctor and he changed my antibiotic to Duricef ( first generation cephalosporins). I have already taken Cipro for 8 days. How effective is Duricef for Acute Prostatitis treatment?
Avatar n tn Dear CCF, I went to a Neurologist because my skin hurt and was burning. After he did a Nerve Test he said the Cipro I had taken caused a cutaneous sensory Neuropathy. Can you explain what that means? Dear Sally, Many pharmaceutical agents can cause a peripheral neuropathy.
Avatar n tn I still have extreme sensitivity and the muscle aches and joint pain are pretty bad, coming and going but always there. Its also accompanied with a sore/swollen throat I've had for 2 weeks. My main question is about the aches and joint pain and sore throat. Can Herpes do this? I suspect I picked up the virus about 3 months before my first signs of pain. Can these aches and pains be from herpes? I'm also worried about it possibly being CFS, but not really fatigued at all.
Avatar m tn I HAD A UTI AND A YEAST INFECTION FOR THE FIRST TIME I WAS GIVEN CIPRO AND NOW HAVE DEVELOPED JOINT PAIN IN MY HAND AND FEET I AM A 44 YEAR OLD IN MINT CONDITION IF NOT FOR THIS ANY IDEAS
Avatar m tn I think my doctor should have known better since I complained about joint pains the first time I took Cipro. I also learned that Cipro has a black label warning for tendon ruptures but unfortunately we the consumers don't know about it. Lately, the neck and shoulder itch is coming back big time. I went back to my doctor before reading this forum and asked him if I could have possibly developed candida overgrowth from the antibiotics.
Avatar f tn Has anyone had any problems with heart rhythm and taking cipro? I have read the side effects and it's scaring me. I don't have any QT prolongations but I sure have other rhythm problems.
Avatar n tn My husband has been diagnosed with diverticulitis and is being treated with Flagyl and Cipro. He now has a fever and terrible stomach pain and a hives like rash on his face and a slight fever. He has had three doses and I am wondering what to do.
Avatar f tn I suppose many people get joint pain, but hearing your story and others, makes me think the joint pain is related to the breast inflammation. Thanks.
Avatar m tn I am curious about Rifampin, because I would like to hit the bacteria as hard as possible (and before the population fully recovers from the azithromycin and Cipro) to prevent developing chronic arthritis (if it works that way).
Avatar m tn I have been on cipro for 5 days now. So in all I have had 6 days of doxy and 5 days of cipro. How likely is it that the infection is gone? Seems like I still have some symptoms but could that be in my head? I will fininsh the cipro and see what happens in 5 more days. Just seems like I am not making any progress.
Avatar n tn Shortly after had 4/5 weeks neuropathic symptoms - parathesia feet legs hands arms face etc Also affected some muscles and tendons with minor balance problems. Neurologist diagnosed as Guillaine Barre Syndrome and believed it would clear up completely. No treatment offered and largely cleared up although a couple of minor flares since. A couple of months later - one and a half weeks flu type respiratory illness - lost voice, swallowing saliva difficult, confined to bed.
Avatar n tn Possible Mast cell activation disorder? Why woulod immune response continue and I keep feeling worse, aftger Cipro and Diflucan and Nuva ring were discontinued? How is this treated???? I am so exhuasted I cannot function. ALl bloods normal except histamine in urine and malabsorption, ie, Vit B-12, D, anemia. Is IViG indicated?

Avatar n tn muscle pain, joint pain, vision problems, constant UTI's, digestive problems, abdominal swelling, etc... the list goes on, and I suffered for 2 years. Here is what I have researched and found: taking antibiotics (from the quinolone family: Cipro is one of these) kills the "good" bacteria you need in order to live a healthy life. When "bad" bacteria overgrows, you can have serious health problems. Bad bacteria has to come out... hence the UTI's.
443434 tn?1255891233 I have been to my eye doctors 7 times, and yes, they agree that Cipro can cause floaters and eye problems. It is one of the side effects.
