I use Advair for COPD. It works but the side effects include muscle and bone pain which can be really unpleasant. That is why I’m awake right now, hurts too bad to sleep.

Is that muscle and bone pain from the Advair? I smoked too much for too many years, but I think a lot of my probs were caused/exaserbated by some heavy abdominal surgery 4 years ago and the meds or whatever.
In any case, I take the whole 9 yards. Advair (2x daily) and Spiriva (1x daily) for the longer term and Combivent every 4 waking hours. Of course, I have Albuterol and a nebulizer for very bad times. Too much sometimes, I think.
anyway, seems like I'm getting worse, but suspect I just need to push myself and exercise/maybe workout. Too sedentary, I'm afreaid.

Is there any chance that you have an osteoporotic compression fracture from the steroid in Advair? Maybe you should see a doc.
