Can LIPITOR cause back problems

A friend told me that taking LIPITOR caused him bad lower back and hip pain and even affected his legs; causing some numbness and weakness. I have heard this story from severall people who had taken LIPITOR and after quiting their back problems cleared up. Has this happened to anyone else?
May God's Peace be with you!

Re: Can LIPITOR cause back problems

My mom was taken off Lipitor due to numbness, weakness, tingling and swelling of the legs and for back pain. It took a while for everything to go away but it finally did.
