Antibiotics and tendon issues

Just an FYI: Last year I had to have a plate put in my shoulder due to I tore the rotator completely off. Two months ago while almost healed, I had to take a 30 day supply of Cipro.

Two weeks in, it felt like I caused the same damage to the same shoulder again. Doc did an MRI and injected it only to find nothing wrong. Two weeks after I was done with Cipro, my shoulder pain cleared up and there have been no issues since.

The pain was intense and it actually felt like I tore the tendon.....just a heads up if any similar incidents happen to you guys.

Yes BE CAREFUL on Cipro when lifting. It is known to cause tears and bursts in tendons
