I was taken off simvastatin last December because of pain in my liver. NHS scans etc.,all clear but Tests showed the enzyme level in liver to be 97, then, 76, 54, and recently 43. So, 6 weeks ago, my doctor put me back onto statins as colesterol was 6.9 (Atorvastatin.) After two weeks I was getting leg cramps in bed, but carried on taking them and last week the liver pain returned. Doctor suggested taking tablet every other day, but now writing this at 3am as couldn't sleep as a bit painful. Will stop taking ( his suggestion) and book blood test. Any comments please..if this happened to you, how were you then treated? Thanks.
