my husband developed hip pains so bad he can hardly walk 20 yards . He had been on simvastatin for 6 years but pains started 3 years in so he didn't associate it. Gp said to keep taking them but he came off 6 months ago and has been paying for trigger point therapy. The pains in feet. Legs. Thighs. Calves have subsided but hips not responded yet. Hopeful though that the muscle damage will eventually subside. Gps will not admit statins are to blame.
