  • eithout obvious injury,

    eithout obvious injury, tendon ruptures are linked to the qinolone family of antibiotics. I also have MS and have limited amount of antibioyics I can handle. Unfortunately one of tbese us Levaquin and it's generic forms and other quinolines. We already have enough mobolity problems so you can imagine finding out a common dide effect of these sntibiotics are tendon ruptutes...spontaneous...all the eay up yo a year after taking this class of antibiotics. If you have taken any antibiotics before the Achilles problems, I would not wait another day to find out the name and class of the antibiotic! Scary stuff....good luck...will pray that your tendons will heal!...
