I just cure typhoid, I was taking fluoroquinolones such as ciprofloxacin, levofloxacin and ofloxacin, my hamstrings and legs were feeling weak, I spent two months on antibiotics, it was a horrible experience. Typhoid fever increases levels of TBG, that made me very hypothyroid. Fortunately my legs and tendons back to normal, but I'll never take quinolones!. During treatment with antibiotics I was taking magnesium chloride to prevent damage to the tendons.

My Doctor told me to run...not walk...if anyone tried to prescribe me quinolones. He said the major problem is they have a tendency to cause tendon deterioration and cause rupture. I've ruptured my Achilles tendon twice and it's thready again.

Get you some CoQ10 and start taking it immediately. ASAP. At least 200 mgs. per day.

I wondered what happened to you. OMG!!! You were soooooooooooooo sick; were you not? Are you lucky to be alive???

Missed you a bunch!!!

Oh, my poor friend!!
