I recently took Cipro as prescribed fro ulcerative colitis.

Customer Question

I recently took Cipro as prescribed fro ulcerative colitis. Several days after stopping the medication I had severe pain in both shoulders and both hips. My dr gave me a Prednisone 10 day treatment. The pain stopped while taking the Prednisone. Several days later it came back, and it is progressively worse as each day goes by. My dr is not helping me and I fear I will soon be unable to walk due to the severe pain in my hips.

JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
