Statins – which side are you on?I was prescribed 90mg of Lipitor after an acute cardiac event. I then started to get severe back pain and was unable to walk for more than a few hundred yards or stand for any length of time. I did'nt associate this with the drug until I was in hospital and met a guy who had the same problem and had done some research and had stopped taking it. Within 2 months his pain started to subside and was at that time pain free. I stopped taking it and am now pain free and can walk 6 miles without any problem. I also suffered cramps at night and nightmares which can be other side effects. I control my cholesterol through a low carb diet. All the patient studies are done by the drug companies and are cofidential. They are making billons out this mass prescription!
