I had some numbness in my toes with my first dose of Levaquin, but I didn't put the connection together until after the 3rd dose and the rest of my body was now becoming numb. My doctors have run all the tests to eliminate other medical causes, and have determined that I might have had a minor Guillain Barre Syndrome or even a reaction to Levaquin.

I am still numb and having difficulty walking and using my hands. I also developed high heart rate and high blood pressure that I never had before. They say that I must remain patient and that it will eventually heal, but for an active person with children, that waiting (already 6 weeks) is extremely difficult. Has anyone else had similar reactions?
