To those who are new to my plight or are unfamiliar with my personal situation, my life is delineated with a clear demarcation line. The life before taking Levaquin, a fluoroquinolone (FQ) antibiotic, and my life after. My healthy life before and my not so healthy life after. It is my story, my quin story, my life after Levaquin; Extremely healthy in one season, and a struggle with health the next.
After so many unremarkable tests, and so many years, some of the bigger pieces of the puzzle, for me, are starting to fall into place.

One culprit that is often overlooked in chronic Fluoroquinolone toxicity is small intestinal bacterial overgrowth, or SIBO.
One hundred patients who went to the Emergency Room and received a Fluoroquinolone were studied, in ninety nine of those cases, errors were made with the Fluoroquinolone!
