    I am wondering if anyone else diagnosed with Fibro has been given Crestor for high chloesterol and/or Remicade for RA.

    I have been given those two drugs and they come with the warning about muscle pain. All of my docs say that they can't be responsible for the muscle pain, even though the products carry the warning. After 4 months on Remicade for the RA, my kidney function tests are bad. The kidney function tests indicate that if I continue with the Remicade and, possibly the Crestor, that I could eventually have muscle damage.

    Again, my docs just do not seem to "get" this. I have taken myself off the Crestor, and I will not be returning for more Remicade infusion therapy.

    However, like everything else with this disease, I wonder if I am crazy for thinking that the meds could be related to my worsening Fibro symptoms.

    I would like to hear from anyone else who has taken these meds. Thanks.
