Be careful – good advice. I don’t know if it was the cipro or not, but somehow (not in my memory) I must have hurt my front thigh muscle because it felt like someone tore it off my leg and was twisting it on saturday am. All I did was go to take one simple step down a slope, hadn’t even completed the step and wham – insane intense pain to the point of this little norweigen girl falling to the ground actually screaming and crying. I don’t do that. I may yell an obsenity or two and then grimace, but that’s usually it. Not this rolling on the ground hugging my thigh begging all that be to make it stop.
Anyone else have a muscle reaction to cipro like this? Or have any links I could go to? It’s the only thing that changed last week – unless I had a virus and not bronchitis and it had settled in my muscles - I suppose it could be that. I’m baffled as to where this came from. I’m not on the cipro anymore, just in case. Any insight would be appreciated, if there is any. I’m on crutches and oxycodone to heal – have to go in again if it doesn’t go away.
Stopped taking it - don't want to chance it. I'm cleansing now.
Don't joke - it hurt so bad on saturday i was about to suggest that to Muryl.
Just hoping that resting the muscle for a week will help. Hope it won't be permanent. You know how active I am. One heck of a way to get me to slow down. about crawled out of my skin yesterday tho not being able to do anything. grrrr...
And coming to work today was embarassing. Last thing I needed. My boss' "bed side manner" isn't the best lately. Makes it hard. I don't care if people laugh, I'd laugh with them. But she's been makign me feel that its my fault lately. Gee, that makes a girl feel all better and so motivates me to work harder. ugh.
saw my chiro/kinisiologist guy last night and tonight. have an appt on thursday morning with my doc. We'll see what happens. People have also mentioned a virus that's been going around that settles in the muscle tissue - so I just don't know yet.
No one (mds) has yet to tell me how and why my leg would do the spastic jig like its been doing.
