I took the antibiotic Cipro (which causes tendon pain and ruptures) and now have a bunch of problems with both ankles. I have achilles tendon pain, and I also have pain and swelling on the inside of my ankle and arch of foot. It hurts to move my toes back, and I can't stand on my toes at all (can't even get off the ground). I also have no balance and sway. If I walk one foot in front of the other (like a drunk driving test), I fall.
I know I have achilles tendinitis, but does this also sound like posterior tibial tendon dysfunction. If not, what else could it be. If it is that, what do you do for it. Do you need to wear a boot for this. Could I be hurting myself further by wearing tennis shoes and walking. I walk as little as possible. I have an appointment with an ortho doctor in two weeks. In the mean time, any information at all would be greatly appreciated.
