Michael's Story

 Was taking Fluticasone/Salmeterol (Advair) inhaler for a sinus condition.  Doctor prescribed Levaquin.  I took one pill in the evening and woke up the next morning with swollen tender feet and ankles.

I called the ER and was told to stop taking the medication.  I went back to the ER and was given many tests and given pain medication.  I was unable to stand, walk or sit for five days.  I was in considerable pain.

The swelling went down leaving me with a tingling burning pain in both feet and my fingers.

I have gotten much better and returned to my part time job.
