Reading in the national in the National press this week regarding reports of research that appears ton confirm the adverse side effects that statins can have on some patients. This prompted to do a search re statins /pmr. It appears that some Doctors feel that there is such a thing as statin induced pmr & that some research confirms this ,but more research is needed in the matter. As I am male ( much less likely to contract pmr ) & on statins this was of interest to myself. I am now wondering if I should discontinue the statins & in my case could the statins be the cause of my pmr. Any thoughts, inputs, or definitive views would be welcome.
