Re: I took Floxin, new tile floors, and sudden track injury

Posted by Beverly on 8/10/00 at 17:30 (025145)

I took Floxin about a year before developing PF. This would not seem like a connection except awhile back there was an article in the newspaper linking Floxin with tendon injuries... especially ruptured achilles tendons and it said it can come months and months later.

I was wearing the wrong shoes... worn out old sneakers.
Suddenly taking up working out after years of being a couch potato.
Weighing a good 20 pounds more than I used to.
Walking briskly on an indoor track.
Plus, I had just bought a new house with mostly tile floors.

But my pain came while on the track. Sudden and intense. So, I believe I hurt myself on the track. It seems like it is made out of some kind of soft cement. I often wonder if it would have happened if I had gotten new running shoes and worn inserts or even just avoided the hard track and used the treadmill.
