Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (5 months ago):

  • I have been in pain and have suffered for over 7 years with muscle pain with cramping, aching, burning, stinging, pins/needles, weakness, numbness and paralysis, etc. I live with fatigue and utter exhaustion everyday and hate having to take medicine period, but have no choice in the matter. I know that this is something serious..I can feel it. I just have to get the Doctors, to find it...and fix whatever it is that is wrong.
    I am trying to find what is the root cause of it all, then I might be able to find some relief.."Lord Willing". I have always been a driven individual and love life. I am a fighter and a survivor, so I will continue forward..until I find a way to the answer.
    The pain level stays around 5 or 6 everyday and can be overwhelming at times, but I pray and I find relief for a moment..from The Lord. Grateful to be alive. Just want life to be normal again and to be able, to spend my time with my family that I have missed so much of.

  • 44 y/o female, type 1 diabetes 38 years, 2 heart attacks, 4 stents, congestive heart failure, renal failure. Was put on statin drugs approx. 6 years ago after first MI. Didn't feel good, felt better after I quit taking them. In January, had another MI, with stent intervention. Approximately 8 weeks later, began feeling worse again, went back to doctor. Had another angio, was told my heart was fine. Quit taking statin and pain went away almost immediately. In July, another small MI, with stent intervention and put back on statin. Immediately began having severe neck and back pain with no injury, trouble sleeping, troubling dreams, extreme fatigue. Almost 6 weeks to the day, began having moderate chest pain and returned to ER, had another angio which showed all coronary open and clear, no reason for chest and back pain.

    Hi - currently taking: Lantus and Humalog insulin, Coreg, Hydralazine, Wellbutrin, Celexa, Plavix, Aspirin, Ferrous Sulfate (iron). On occasion I take Lasix for fluid retention and with that I take potassium. I have recently been prescribed Ranexa by my nephrologist, but am not sure I want to take it. Supposedly it is to be taken in conjunction with the hydrazine. Since I quit taking the Statins (cholesterol meds), I feel sooooo much better. Also, I take Norco for overall pain, mostly from neuropathy in my legs.
