2wk later of peeing striaght bld retaining fluid in my ft, ankles, and lower back. I was sent to urogloist, nephologist, (spent lot of wasted money) to come find out savella was burning up my kidneys. I just say use with caution it's been 2 wks and I still got 10lbs of fluid has to come off yet.
I too have fallen victum to Sevella. The medicine did help my pain BUT in 5 days after I started it I developed a severe kidney infection which I am taking medicine now for that. I was also taking Vesicare long before this but I don't know if the 2 meds didn't like each other or not. :/ I guess I will just deal with the pain of my fibromyalgia instead of losing a kidney. I am so afraid to try it again because it hurt my back so bad. Any suggestions from a doctor on this? I also take Exforge for my blood pressure.
