Was treated with cipro (ciprofloxacin) twice in last year for illnesses. now am having a problem with joints popping in and out of place. can having taken cipro (ciprofloxacin) be the cause for new joint/tendon/ligament issues?

No: Cipro (ciprofloxacin) may rarely be associated with tendon issues but you description suggests that the two are not related.
