Comments from related studies:
From this study (2 days ago):
Severe bone degeneration with severe bome muscle joint pain mainly shoulders back neck arms wrists fingers hands with small lumps or nodules all over body inside skin and swollen lymph glands
From this study (4 days ago):
My Crestor was recently increased from 10 mg. to 20 mg. secondary to abnormal labs. I wasn't totally NPO as I had coffee with cream approx. 6 hours earlier. My physician felt that he could allow for this when he read the results. After approximately a week or less the fingers on my right hand felt tired and stiff like I had been tournament bowling. I very quickly progressed to joint pain, specifically the middle finger which was extremely painful at times. I have a neuropathy in my left hand, so I can't compare the two hands. I stopped the Crestor for a couple of days and it seemed to improve. I was wondering if the sudden increase in Crestor could cause that particular joint pain.
