Default ER TRIP TO HOSPITAL

I took Zetia for about 14 mo. for elevated HDL/LDL. I started trainging for a Marathon in the Fall when I noticed very dark urin. I called the Dr. and She ordered a blook test. My test showed my CK levels to be 38,000 normal 100-200. I spent two days in the hospital. I had rhabdomyolysis or muscle myothpy. (break down of muscle tissue). After 9 mo of blood test a muscle biospy, and many Dr visits, I am unable to ever run again and have week arms. This drug has done something to my muscles that is not reversable. My Dr. is in the process of trying to get me an apt at the Mayo Clinic.
