Re: polymyositis symptoms

I was diagnosed in 2008 with cpk at 6900. I haven't had any of those problems then and now. I am on methotrexsate 8 /2.5 mg once a week. I have strted taking 500 mg of zithromax once a week. My reaumatologist would not discuss this with me but my primary Dr. gave me a 6 weeks script just to see if it makes me feel better. It does, I notice I don't have that flu like feeling all the time. I spent a week at Branson MO and never got wore out. I notice other people write about taking anti-biotics.
