Just over three years ago i was relatively healthy with under active thyroid and blood pressure a bit high so my gp tried me on the statin route , even though i told them two other attempts gave me dreadful side effects they were stopped within days .
He persisted that i take them but three months in i was struck down with muscle pain all over my body my legs being the worse.
One gp said i had polymyalgia not statin induced muscle damage (covering their backs)
18months of steroids and no proper relief in pain now been weaned off .
I am in so much pain just taking ibrufen and been today to a new gp due to a move and been prescribed amyltryptilene sorry if spelt wrong !
So now hopefully i can get some relief be able to sleep and stop crying at almost everything . It has been a very trying stressful year 2017 goodbye and pain free 2018 fingers crossed
