|I took Cipro for 5 days for a suspected UTI
(later found out I did not have an infection at all).
On the day I took the last one I was hit with tendon pain all over my body, especially the front of both knees and in both hips.
Knees and hips are better (not completely back to normal but better) but still feel aches in my shoulders, feet, ankles, back, chest.
It has been 6 weeks and am hoping to continue to improve over time.
