Hello. 9 days ago I started showing symptoms of UTI and I went to the doctor's 2 days later. I wss prescribed ciprofloxacin 250mg (4 tablets in total, 1 every 12 hours). After the second tablet i started experiencing joint pain and stiffness, muscle pain and mild cramping. It wasn't very severe and i wanted to cure my infection, so i completed the course of cipro. It's been 3 days since i stopped taking the drug and im still experiencing muscle and joint problems. There has been no improvement and im getting worried. My UTI seems to have been dealt with. I'll be 20 by the end of the month but I feel like an old person. Is it possible for the side effects to go away or has the drug caused long term damage to my body? Aside from lacking the habit of exercising regularly, I am an otherwise healthy 20 year old. I have to travel back to the country where i study next week and have live on my own. I dont think I'll be able to look after myself properly if im still having these side effects and i am really worried.
