 After many years of her own research, Karen suspected her diagnosis to be a spinal CSF leak so she sought treatment from the best physicians in the field. In the end, Karen took her own life when the treatments did not stop her pain; it is my belief that [[http://​kpaddock.com/​doku.php/​resources/​fluoroquinolones|fluoroquinolone antibiotics]] (Cipro, Levaquin and 20 other names) and steroid use complicated her treatments. After many years of her own research, Karen suspected her diagnosis to be a spinal CSF leak so she sought treatment from the best physicians in the field.

 +It is my conjecture that these antibiotics are why none of the treatments worked for Karen.
 +Over a dozen people have now told me that their CSF Leaks started from two weeks to one year after taking Cipro or Levaquin.

 Sometimes we choose our mission in life, other times it chooses us.  I have become very active in the medical community in raising awareness of Intracranial Hypotension due to Cerebrospinal Fluid (CSF) Leaks. A condition that is more common that many think (for example Actor [[http://​kpaddock.com/​doku.php/​blog/​bpaddock/​george_clooney_has_a_csf_leak|George Clooney had/has a CSF Leak]] and considered suicide), yet is so unknown that some doctors argue the condition does not even exist. Sometimes we choose our mission in life, other times it chooses us.  I have become very active in the medical community in raising awareness of Intracranial Hypotension due to Cerebrospinal Fluid (CSF) Leaks.
