I have been taking atorvastatin 40 mg daily for about two years. about two months ago I began getting cramps in lower back and pain in pelvic area, but was able to walk, I stopped swimming because the cramps got me while doing the crawl and I could not control my body. I also can get dizzy, nausea. fatigue. my cholesterol has come down, but I cannot take the pain which has a detrimental effect on my daily life. during the onset on the cramps it took me about 20 minutes to slide out of bed, something like a snake. thanks for you advice.
