I will try and keep this brief. I have searched the forum and found some mention of Fluoroquiolone toxicity syndrome (now also being associated with Gulf war syndrome). A while ago I was looking into Ciprofloxacin as I had it immediately before onset of ME symptoms and again after diagnosis back in 2001. Because most things I read seemed to start with the ruptured tendons I discounted the idea. But, by chance, I came across other sites, forums, scientific papers which presented a much wider set of symptoms and a light bulb went on in my head (doesnt happen very often). here are a couple: http://www.curezone.org/forums/description.asp?f=901 http://www.theecologist.org/News/ne...biotic_ciprofloxacin_linked_to_uk_deaths.html there is a support group for UK on Facebook but as Im not an FBer i haven't looked. Apparently there is a test : DNA Adduct mass spectrogram analysis; to detect quinolone molecules. Has anyone been tested? How do you get the test? And (I know this is highly unlikely) could I get it thro the NHS?
