I've been on Atorvastatin for several years now, initially due to my diabetes.
I was initially a little apprehensive due to the concerns over muscular problems.
Luckily I had no issues even when they upped the dose to 40 mgs and my additional medications for my stroke and bypass.
I have always considered myself lucky.
That said, over the last few weeks I have had bad cramps especially in my legs but Las night I had considerable pain in my legs, both thigh and calf. It was extremely uncomfortable.
It eventually faded after about 30 mins and I managed to get back to sleep.
It is absolutely fine now with just a faint ache where the pains were.
Obviously if this continues I'll go back to the GP about this additional problem, but wondered if anyone had issues after a long time of using Atorvastatin? I am thinking of leaving off the tablets for a few days just to see if it helps.
