Just want to touch bases with fluoroquioline sufferers like myself to see how we are progressing! So far I'm 3 months off the meds and still in lots of pain, all my joints and tendons hurt, pull, crack and make popping sounds!! I feel like i have arthirithis!! Not to mention I may have developed mild sleep apnea due to this, doing a sleep study this week to confirm it. I'm just really down and out about it all. Anxiety still high, thank god the pain attacks only lasted a week! But I'm highly anxious and getting ekg's left and right from the rapid heartbeat and sporadic chest and arm pains. Head pressure, ringing in ears, neck and shoulder pain... Exercising is excruciating the days after.. Where is the resolution?! Has anyone found one? I'm mentally drained as my thoughts run wild!! HELP!!!
Yeah-I know what you mean. My tendons were already ruined from statin toxicity-same symptoms. I was prescribed it while I had a thyroid storm-and I was so bad that I sprained my back tossing and turning. I couldn't get up or down without help. I can barely walk 2 blocks. I had gone to an urgent care for the thyroid storm-the pharmacy gave me the wrong med that caused that.
I'm doing better. I do hamstring stretches and then pack ice on each leg for 15 minutes. That and physical therapy has made the difference in me walking at all or not.
