myalgia new symptom

Submitted by lee mcghee on Fri, 2009-07-17 10:23

About a week ago I started getting minor pains in my muscles that would last for a second or so. Now. I feel them more frequently and on different parts of the body. This all started after I took a week of Levaquin. I hope its not from the Levaquin!! Anybody got any information on this Myalgia and what to expect. This is all new to me and its scary.

Sounds like die off to me. Take charcoal and magnesium for the muscles. I'm not a big fan of this drug because of it's bad reputation for tendon damage. Why take chances. Raven

Feeling 98% well-going for 100. Very low test for Cpn. CAP since 8-05 for Cpn/Mycoplasma P.,Lyme, Bartonella, Mold exposure,NAC,BHRT, MethyB12 FIR Sauna. 1-18-11 begin new treatment plan with naturopath

Yeah thats why I stoped taking it. I think it might be die off as well. I upped my azithro dosage and thats whenI started getting pain in my muscles. It comes and goes.

Did you know that fluoroquinolones can be very dangerous to some people?

While these people do not know what really happened to them, I strongly suspect it is just a very powerful die-off, that causes a massive porphyrin wave and then the porphyrins accumulate in their bodies and they are not getting rid of it. This response is unpredictable, some get it immediately after the first few pills, while others get it later.
You don't want to take this risk at least when you know your Cpn load is still high.
No official diagnosis.

I upped my magnesium intake and I feel alot better. Ill take some charcoal later too

thanks Raven.
