Popeye Is Back

Don't know why, but out of the blue from nowhere, my Popeye arm (the name the grocery clerk gave my arm before therapy) decided to flare up. It was about three o'clock in the afternoon...took off the sleeve so that I could wash it and do my therapy. Thought I was feeling a little puny and maybe coming down with a cold....then when I saw "Popeye", he was all red and hot...then the fever and chills started. The next morning I called Dr. Hagans and got started on Levaquin...wonder drug!! The fever broke and hopefully I caught it early enough that the infection is on its way out!! It just doesn't make sense to me....how this could just flare up....no scratches, cuts, hangnails......maybe it is just to make me more grateful for how much better my arm is now. We were just talking about my arm Monday at work and how well it was doing....perhaps, we jinxed it....who knows...but it is great to be on the way to recovery again...not fun to have chills!!!

I am glad you are back on-line and hate that you have to deal with the popeye arm.

Be very very careful with this Levaquin, it is from the antibiotic family called Quinolones and is very powerful. Hundreds if not many thousands of us have had some very serious side effects from it... perminent tendon damage, or even Peripheral Neuropathy for life like myself... just wanted to pass on if maybe it might help someone.
