Hi, I am from Canada -- and took Levaquin probably a total of 10 times, or more.
I am 24 years old. Recently, I was walking and suddenly I got a pain on the side of my foot, near the flat of my foot. It hurt so bad, I could not walk properly for weeks.
It healed up -- a few weeks later it came back... now it is gone again but I am afraid it will come back
Furthermore, my knees click, and lock now... I will start running outside and I'll scream for a second and say OUCH, it doesn't feel like a smooth motion.
My question is, could Levaquin have caused this tendonitis? There were NO warning labels on my medication that it could cause tendonitis or other serious problems. Nor was I notified of it by my pharmacist or doctor.
I see a lot of AD's on TV about people suing Levaquin for this. But I am in Canada, and there doesn't seem to be anyone specializing in a field like that.
So first question. Could Levaquin have caused this? And if so, being a Canadian -- does anyone know if I can sue for this, if infact it is what caused this problem?
I also have a problem with my shoulder... it clicked when I move it in a circular motion.
