I am trying o help out a friend who last nigh as she slept had a second tendon in her calf tear.. the achillies tendon.. within 5 months of her first leg tear and also within 5 years of tearing a wrist tendon and a rotator cuff.

She went to the er and they sent her home with pain meds and a follow up with her main Doc ( which is a medicare accepted Doc who chooses to try to get her to make salvation with god in order to heal) she is having a problem where she is finding out what she has.. she had a high white blood count with no illness symptoms at the er and usually feels fatigued and down with little to no energy.

im taking a shot here hoping anyone knows a disease she can ask her Doc to test for.. so far they tell her she suffers from fhs?

thanks in advance!

  • I think some medications can cause tendon problems. Is she taking prescribed medications? High white count can indicate infection and I think, inflammation. So she could have her sed rate checked. You sound like a good friend!

  • Google Levaquin + tendon. These antibiotics are well known for this
