Does Cipro kill Lyme or any of the co-infections?
I've been on IV Cipro for a staph infection in my abdomen (a big lump under my skin that is slowly shrinking) for about 11 days. For the last few days, my Lyme/co-infection symptoms have become a lot more intense, but I know Cipro also has some pretty bad side-effects especially tendon issues.
So how does one tell the difference between Lyme joint pain and Cipro-related tendon side-effects?
Back to my heating pad...thanks,
