Fluroquinolone exposure caused in Hypervascular Tendonosis/Non Insertional Retrocalcaneal Bursitis

May 10, 2016 12:58 PM

My Fluroquinolone exposure symptoms: Has anyone else experienced these conditions coupled with Achilles's tendon ruptures on both ankles?

Feel like being stabbed in the calves with a six inch blade whilst both Achilles's tendons at back of both ankles have been slashed with a razor. Left ball of foot feels like there is a nail being driven into it at the underside rear of the ball of the foot. All of this pain occurs simultaneously, always the same intensity. Resulting in me be crippled. Even when legs are elevated the sensations in the ankles and feet remain constant. I'm using a mobility scooter to remain mobile. I find anything over 560 steps a day exacerbates the severity from unbelievable pain to completely intolerable insane levels of pain as described above.

I'm sorry that you're going through this. What has your doctor suggested to help? I had to search the drug to find out anything about it. It seems that the FDA sent out warnings on injuries to the tendons. I wish I had some suggestions for pain relief, other than massages, which I'm thinking would not help. I'm sending you gentle hugs and praying you'll find a way to get relief soon! 🙂💕🙏🌼

Gizmo I hope the acupuncture and PT works to relieve some pain. I don't know if I have hell spurs or not but I have plantar fascitis. I wear thick special made insert orthotics. I can't stand it walk long without them. And my insurance won't cover them unless I had diabetes. I get them from a place called Foot Solutions, and they're based in California, but have offices in various places. I'm in GA. I have found some tennis shoes, by Gravity Defyer that uses a spring system to absorb shock. You might look into their shoes for relief from the heel pain. Vionic also has gold shoes for problem feet. Both companies have websites. Maybe you can find some shoes or orthotics to help you with some of the heel pain.

Thank you for replying flappylady81 I have got insoles from cardio for my flat feet and bone growths on my bones. I find them to painfull because thay are hard plastic so thay went out of window. So I got some made from the NHS witch was soft thay did help some but thay fell to peaces after a couple of months. So I'm hopping to get something a bit better. I have to start with acupuncture first and work my way up to see any one who specialise in feet .that could take mouths .I still haven't got a date for the acupuncturists and it's been 6 weeks since I've seen GP gentle hugs sue x

Oh no, my inserts are not hard plastic. They're multi layered and they work to customize them to each person. They're expensive, but one pair usually lasts me 2-3 years, daily wear. See if there is a store near you. http://footsolutions.com
