It only happens at night when I go to bed. My feet feel numb and there is a tightness feeling that goes up the front of my leg about 8 inches or so. A chiropractor told me that it could be caused by simvastatin of which I have been taking for about a year and six months. Could this be so??? I have a hard time falling asleep from this. It goes away if I get up and walk.

Yes its a side effect of taking Simvastain - numbness or persistent tingling of the hands or feet
You must talk to the doc, it could be due to edema, I too suffer from this & take a diuretic prescribed by the doc.

I was prescribed Lipitor by my physician. But I heard that Simvastatin (Zocor) has less of a negative effect on the body than Lipitor. Is it true?
