Daniel FQWall

Daniel Sheridan 01/18/13
My name is Daniel L. Sheridan, I am now 58 yrs. of age. I was prescribed Ciprofloxacin for a total of 37 days. I have had multiple non-traumatic tendon ruptures. My knee, both arms, tendons in my lower back. Because of the lack of support from my ruptured back tendons it has caused accelerated spine degeneration. I had 1 back surgery 2 yrs. ago. Now in 1mth., another back fusion surgery. Cipro has also weakened the tendons in my eyes causing double vision. My vision was corrected with Prisim lenses. Doctors have determined that Ciprofloxacin was the cause. I am now 100% disabled and on Social Security Disability. Not only do I still have all of the ruptured tendons I have tendenosis affecting my back, chest, and shoulders and arms. After back surgery, I am going to have my shoulders repaired. Cipro was prescribed for a sinus infection.

On 9/13/14 Daniel added that he had been diagnosed with peripheral neuropathy.

Norah’s Story – Cipro Poisoning

Norah FQwall

I have had a blood condition that leaves me susceptible to many bacterial infections, and have had since I was 19. I have had many, many runs of antibiotics for many many reasons. I have no medical records to look at, but I believe I may have been poisoned as many as 5 separate times before this year. Here is the story of my poisoning.
In spring 2011, I separated from a long and soul killing 8 year marriage, took a job in Alberta and moved to Edmonton from BC. I was determined to go into my 45th year healthy and happy, and started a fitness routine and healthy eating plan of salmon, chicken, brown rice, veggies and fruit. No processed sugar, no gluten (been off that for years).

In October of 2011, I was jogging to work as usual. It is about 5 k, and I noticed a hip pain. Within 3 days, I was unable to walk on my hip, and had to cease jogging. I continued to walk, but the pain intensified and within a week or two, I was unable to walk to work as well. I simply stopped the exercise believing it was an exercise related injury, and as I sat all day at work, things settled down. In January of 21012, I went to the gym (gained weight sitting around doing nothing), and the pain was instantaneously back.

In January 2012, I started a new job. I was on my feet all day, and my hip progressively got so bad, that the knee and ankle became involved. I was also exhausted, suffering from multiple mouth sores, skin infections and I couldn’t eat due to nausea. I went to a walk in clinic (new to province, no doctor), I saw a doctor who ran blood work as a matter of course. My white cells were low (normal for me), and I had an enzyme in my pancreas that was acting up.
