I have recently had my meds changed from Simvastatin to Atorvastatin. About this time I started with very acute pain in the lower part of my body - from my hips down my legs into my feet. This pain is so bad that I find walking very difficult, cannot exercise and find sleep almost impossible. I believe that muscle pain is a side effect of Atorvastatin and was wondering whether anyone else has experienced this.
I do have damage in my spine, but I have never experienced pain like this. I would be grateful for any comments. Especially as I am due to go away on holiday in about 10 days time. Thanks.
