Over a number of years I've taken a number of fluoroquinolone medicines including, Cipro, Levaquin, Tequin, Ciprodex, Ofloxacin and Ciprofloxacn. It took a while but I started noticing that the leg and foot cramps I would get occasionally would always occur when taking the above meds. The painful leg and foot cramps would happen most often upon waking at night or in the mornings and I would have to get up and "walk them off". I finally did some research online and mentioned to my doctor that I felt that Levaquin (which I was taking at that time) should be listed as a contraindicated medication for me. I now know that the other fluoroquinoline meds also cause this problem for me. I have only taken Ofloxacin (as ear drops) over the last few years, and continue to get the foot and leg cramps occasionally. ADDITIONALLY, just this week I took a supplement which I had heard could be beneficial for treating asthma, Quercetin with Bromelain. Within about 1-2 hours I began having a tingling in my legs and then had some significantly bad cramping in both my legs and right foot. It took awhile but finally subsided. Then when I got up the next morning, more cramps and I had developed a painful spot on the bottom of my left foot, a hard cyst-like ball under the skin which was extremely tender. I have not been able to wear a shoe or walk normally now for four days. Not sure what is going on at this point.
