Condition, UTI

I took 1 Trovan (quinolone) which is off the market now. In fact, I took 1 sample, a week before it went off the market and 4 Macrobid for a UTI infection. Macrobid is not a quinolone but highly toxic to the nerves. I have experienced in the course of 2 years:

massive bruising


muscle spasms

Peripheral neuropathy: tingling in all areas of the body (mainly in legs for the better part of 1 year), stinging and strange nerve sensations (crawling like) from the tips of my toes to the top of my head. It took me a year to figure out it had something to do with those drugs. Yep, I have fought depression, but keep going.
