Recovery Stories

Fluoroquinolone recovery stories from Cipro & Levaquin

One of the many frustrating things about floxing is that everyone’s experience is different.  We have enough in common to know that we have all been welcomed into the lovely club of Floxies, the club that no one wants to join, that includes the benefits of connective tissue and nervous system damage, but the differences between us are vast.  Some people have GI issues, some don’t.  Some have tinnitus (ringing in the ears), some don’t.  Some have vision issues, some don’t.  Some have severe pain, some don’t.  Some have mental health issues, including psychosis, some don’t.  The list can go on and on but healing is real and Fluoroquinolone recovery stories are real too.

Fluoroquinolone recovery stories and symptoms

Our symptoms are not one-size-fits-all.  Neither is our timeline.  And, unfortunately, neither is our cure.  I hope that what helped me will help you.  If what helped me doesn’t help you, I hope that what helped another person whose story is on this site will help you.  Everyone’s path is different though.  It’s sad, it’s frustrating and it’s annoying.  Please have hope though.  Many people do recover. Fluoroquinolone recovery stories from Cipro & Levaquin are real and I hope that the stories below will give you hope on your journey. Also please check out our podcast section where you can find talks with other “floxies” and hear their stories as well.

If you want to go beyond Fluoroquinolone recovery stories from Cipro & Levaquin please check out our resources.I also want to note that you can find more information about the mechanisms of the drug here.

I hope that you find healing and hope through these stories.  Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
