Hello everyone! I would like to share my story. I am from Mexico, and was given cipro xr 9 months ago for a UTI. Only had 3 500 mg pills. and I got floxed. I had panic attacks, coudn´t eat at all, survived for a month with water and ice in my lips. Lost 35 pounds in a month, diarrhea for 3 months, throwing up the water I drank, mental confusion, pain all over my body. Had multiple tests done here in Mexico and the USA, and apparently for the drs. I just had anxiety…jaja what a joke! MRI, scans, blood tests, brain scans because they thought it was MS or an autoinmune disease. Had to go to ER almost every week. I cried all day long, insomnia, couldn´t express myself well….like the words where not flowing…thought that I was dying every moment…I was scared, depressed, tired. Then I started getting bruises in my legs and small red dots in my hands. One of my toe nails fell, as well as my hair. The list can go on and on, but there is HOPE! Yesterday for the first time in 9 months I went walking 1 mile!!!
I send all my love and prayers!! You´ll get better!! Hang in there!
Thank you for reading and sorry if my english is not very clear. Cipro slows my mind sometimes!!
