    I WAS MISDIAGNOSED FOR 22 YEARS WITH FIBRO...IT WAS LIPITOR...

    22 years ago my cardiologist perscribed LIPITOR for high colorestol. That is when I began to suffer symptoms similiar to Fibromyalgia. I went from doctor to doctor through these painful years, taking anything I could get to relieve the symptoms, but NOTHING ever gave me any relief. During the last years I felt sicker and sicker. After my Rheumatologist ran every test she had available to her, I was told that I did not have Fibromyalgia or anthing else she could detect. I then went to my Primary Care Doctor, in a total panic. Earlier I was also wrongly diagnosed with Lupus, and was treated with Methotrexate, which has caused 4 years of daily nausea. My doctor suggested that I stop taking the LIPITOR to see if that helps...that was just over one year ago, my Fibromyalgia symptoms disappeared, and I am a different person. No more pain and suffering...I URGE YOU TO SPEAK TO YOUR DOCTOR IF YOU TAKE LIPITOR OR OTHER STATINS. I no longer take any statin drugs, and feel like a completely new and healed person...I am happy to hear from you, if there is any way my story might help you or someone you love.
