I took Cipro for 3 days before waking up intensely dizzy with loss of balance and nausea. Over a 3 week period gradually got some better, then was given 2 Floxin.

Woke up the next morning with my head and vision feeling like one of the dolls in the back window of a car. Vision was like a kid with a camcorder.  

Its now 1-1/2 years later and I still can't drive or go back to work. Ears are constantly full of pressure and feel like they have water in them.  They also ring, balance is bad and I walk into walls. Cognitive function isn't what it was. Went to vestibular physical therapy which was a help. 

When I woke up after the 2 Floxin both shoulders were killing me. Didn't want to add that to my list of complaints and thought it would go away.

They got progressively worse till I couldn't lift a fork. Took almost a year for them to get better. Still stiff and achey but livable. The vertigo/balance is impossible.
