Symbicort, My Side Effects

Updated
Dan Says:

I've been taking Symbicort for about a year. I started to get knee pain when I bent my knees. Then lower back pain with shoulder and neck pain. I stopped taking it and experienced withdrawal as shortness of breath. Could hardly walk. It's been a month and I'm starting to feel better. Proventil seem to be having a better effect now.
Joint pain subsided. But I have a rash on my right calf for four months.
What can I do for the rash to subside. Will it go away by itself?
I'm taking epsom salts baths. It seem to be helping with the asthma.

Hi, Dan! How are you doing?

Sorry about the problems you had with the Symbicort.

Have you talked to your doctor about the rash?

What should be done for it, if anything, is really going to depend on what has caused it.

I'm hoping that is will go away by itself just as mysteriously as I got it. It's been since May. It's starting to dry up now. I don't think the doctor could do anything for it since my feelings are that the Symbicort upset my body chemistry and another medication won't help.
I also had joint pain in mostly my knees, but was starting in my neck, back and ankle.
I went through a withdrawal for about six weeks and the knee pain is just about gone, swelling at the joint went down as the pain in the other parts of my body. The Proventil is having more of and effect now.

I have been on Symbacort for 6 months now. The pain in my shoulders and hip started within a week of starting the medicine. Currently I have severe hip and shoulder pain and can't walk without wincing and feeling like vomiting X-Rays show nothing. All they offer is Percoset which I can't take because I have an adverse reaction (asthma and hives) which kind of negates the reason for taking Symbacort (control of asthma)... jeez.

I know what caused the rash on my right foot below my knee. It was symbicort.
I'm using cortisone 10 cream but it doesn't seem to help. Is there a medication to treat my rash??

Hey Im wondering about the symptoms you got from stopping symbicort. I stopped and I am pretty sick but I’m also withdrawing from a benzo but got really bad when I stopped the Symbicort can you tell me your symptoms and how long they lasted. And if your sure it was the symbicort?
