Rahul’s story, in his own words, can be found in this video:

Please watch the video. Rahul is thoughtful, wise, wonderful, charming, and full of poignant advice. I (Lisa) can’t sum-up what he says even close to adequately, but here are a few notes from the video. They’re truly inadequate though, and I hope that you watch the video to get the actual story. Thank you for sharing your wonderful words of wisdom, Rahul!

Rahul was “floxed” by cipro.

His symptoms included, but are not limited to:

  • Anxiety
  • Insomnia
  • Needing to urinate constantly
  • Tinnitus
  • Random sharp pains
  • Suicidal ideation
  • Health anxiety (especially around what he ate and drank)
  • Hyper mania
  • Autonomic nervous system dysfunction
  • Weight loss
  • Inability to cry

He describes how his family came around to supporting him, and how other people in his family had similar reactions to fluoroquinolones in their lives.

When he deeply accepted his illness he stopped suffering. He still experienced symptoms, but he stopped suffering. (Watch the video, Rahul says it so much better than I am repeating.)

He describes his approach to healing and what helped him through fluoroquinolone toxicity. His relationships and inner strength were key more than anything else. (Watch the video, I am putting things way too simplistically, what he says is poignant and thoughtful and wonderful.)

He goes over how he turned the crisis and tragedy of fluoroquinolone toxicity into an opportunity to improve himself and his life. It changed his perspective and his life – and not all the perspective changes were bad.
