    Over 4 years ago I developed a nearly deadly urinary tract infection on a cross country trip, that didn’t get treated for over 8 days. It got really, really bad. I was put on Cipro for 10 days on a really high dosage. The day after my last Cipro pill, I started getting so sick feeling. No appetite, depersonalization, vertigo for nearly 2 months without stopping, my skin felt numb, some of my private parts turned hard, and still haven’t returned to normal completely (sorry to be straightfoward). This lasted from about April-October of 2011.

    I didn’t know about my SD back then, and I definitely had a lot of symptoms of it back then, I remember I even would not be able to catch my breath from simply laughing. I am thinking now, that what I experienced was a HERX! And the reason my SD has progressed so damned slowly is because of this Cipro treatment! All this time I thought I had experienced fluoroquinolone toxicity syndrome, I was even part of a support group for it!

    I should have mentioned that there has been studies of SSc patients being treated with ciprofloxacin for 6 months!
