... ended up with horrible muscle pain from feet to head. Pain ebbed when atorvastatin was withdrawn. So far I have had a little extra pain in my lower back and hips but it's hard to determine if the statin drug is doing it because I have a lot of disc problems in lower back and bursitis in hip which my arthropod is going to fix next week. How many folks here have experienced muscle pain from these meds and how was it handled?
