 1  Suspected Epididymitis I live in Tasmania, Australia. I was prescribed Ciprofloxacin by a urologist without any mention of possible side effects. I Initially experienced pain down both shins (3 days into taking Ciprofloxacin). My legs also felt weak/heavy. By Day 5 the pain was considerably worse and had begun to spread to my ankles and feet. I decided to stop taking any more Ciprofloxacin tablets as the timing seemed to be too much of a coincidence (had now taken 10 tablets - 5 days of 2 tablets per day). Over the next few days the pain continued to spread into my heels, ankles, feet, toes, shoulders, arms and elbows, with shooting pain in my tendons and muscles. I also started experiencing tingling sensations in various parts of my body - like little shocks of electricity that continued to move about the body - particularly limbs and face. My legs started to lose strength and I had difficulty walking. I also began to experience numb feet and toes. I have also experienced brain fog and considerable Two weeks later my condition deteriorated rapidly. I was at work (I am a high school English teacher) and was walking to my classroom when my left ankle begun hurting much worse than I had been experiencing over the last few days. I was barely able to walk. I went to my GP and was admitted to hospital A&E. I continue to have ongoing side effects. The pain has become more concentrated in my joints, especially ankles, shoulders, elbows and wrists, but I continue to have pain down my shins and arms. Just walking from my office to my classroom is difficult and painful as my ankles and lower legs become increasingly sore and weak with walking. Simply holding light objects such as a book for any period of time causes increased pain in my shoulder, arm, elbow and wrists. One of the side-effects that only emerged two months after the initial toxicity is a severe shivering/skin crawling that is very uncomfortable and bordering on painful (perhaps this is due to the weather cooling). I am taking the pain-killer amitriptyline (Endep) daily. I have had to make the difficult decision of reducing my working hours to try to cope with the effects of this toxicity and give my body a greater chance to recover. M 41 5 days

CIPROFLOXACIN  (CIPROFLOXACIN):  This medication is used to treat a variety of bacterial infections. Ciprofloxacin belongs to a class of drugs called quinolone antibiotics. It works by stopping the growth of bacteria. This antibiotic treats only bacterial infections. It will not work for virus infections (such as common cold, flu). Using any antibiotic when it is not needed can cause it to not work for future infections.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
