Been taking Lipitor 20mg for years after failing to reduce my cholesteral with diet etc. I have never eaten more healthy and exercised so much this past 3 yrs yet been in agony some days with muscle and joint pain even after mild exercise,and my weight shot up from 13st to 16st.
So a couple of months ago ive stopped the statin and new feel much better and my weight is dropping slowly. Not discussed this yet with my GP as its near impossible to get an appointment. Cant remember when my last blood test was to check Chol. Had one for my Uric acid ( gout ) around 18 months ago. I also started taking Enzyme Q10 about the same time as I stopped the statin, but unsure if this is making any difference. ?
