|I have been having problems since September of
At first I thought I was having carpel tunnel symptoms in my hands and arms. But I was also having extreme pain in my feet. I have had x-rays and just had a MRI. I have seen several doctors that prescribe physical therapy.
My situation has gotten progressively worse. I have tightness in the tendons in my arms and legs. I have pain in my feet, hands, arms, elbows, shoulders, neck etc. At times I feel as if I hurt all over. I didn't find out about the many similar problems that people have had until this morning when I typed in my search engine "tightness in arms and legs tendon problems".
I found stories through the forum and could not believe what I was reading. I immediately called my pharmacy and asked if the records showed if I have taken any of the listed drugs. He told me that I took 10 Levaquin in August of 2003. I am in shock.
