Comments from related studies:
From this study (1 year ago):
Heel pain and leg cramps were most severe for just a few weeks after taking 7 pills (1/day). One and 1/2 year later, they are minimal, but anxiety, sleeplessness, nervousness, and tremors are still a problem. The tremors started in just the left leg. In the last 3 months, I also have bad tremors in the left arm. While the neurologist was open at first to the fact that my leg tremors were drug-induced, he now believes that I have Parkinson's. It's very coincidental that I never had any symptoms until taking Avelox. My question is, did the Avelox cause the PD or is it just a total coincidence?
