@bborth – Welcome to Connect! You are not alone in having side effects from antibiotics. Cipro belongs to a group called fluoroquinolones. It is now known to occasionally cause serious side effects- musculoskeletal such as Achilles’ tendon rupture, central nervous system and vascular.
Cipro should only be used in serious bacterial infections- such as yours- where it works very well.
I have taken it many times until I got inflammation of the Achilles’ tendons. Flagyl can also cause some nervous system side effects.
Do you have a primary care physician who can evaluate you for neurological problems?
