So I just went online to double check how many Levaquin per day I needed to take and for how long and found this site. I have taken it before, 3 times I remember for sure and now have some sample packets I wanted to take for my current sinus infection. This site was a HUGE eye opener!! I took my 1st cycle somewhere around 26 yrs old,,, that is when I remember that my joint problems started to surface. I just attributed it to getting older. I worked out every day, 2 hrs a day,, it was my passion,, and never really had any problems. The joint problems just seemed to get worse and seemed to come outa nowhere!!. I took levaquin again somewhere right around 30 yrs old,, and whatya know,, my joint pain started getting really bad,, even my hips started hurting. I would joke that turning 30 was the light switch where everything went downhill and how I better put a down payment on a nice walker. I mean cummon,, hips should be fine until at least 50 yrs old.. Anyway, the most definitive proof in my mind was when I took levaquin at 33 yrs old. I, at the time, attributed my "extra" joint pain while taking Levaquin to just being sick. Shortly after I went to the SEMA auto show in Vegas and could barely make it through the first day due to extreme hip, knee, and ankle pain,,, I literally could barely walk. There is no real excuse, now that I think of it, for such a drastic and acute onset of joint pain, especially at such a young age and high level of fitness. I feel now that Levaquin was at a minimum a catalyst for my now chronic joint pain at 36 yrs old. My lifestyle is drastically impacted, which in turn has impacted my state of mind. Is my case legitimate?? Who knows for sure.. But there is no way Im taking it again. Not worth the risk (Although part of me wants to try it just for further affirmation). In conclusion, I am actually quite upset at the thought that an "approved" drug may have ruined my life. I will research this some more as my mother and my fiance's father are both doctors. I'll see what they think and post what I find. Hope this helps.
