There is a good chance that the Lipitor is the culprit in your aching muscles. Some people have an immediate reaction to statins with the aches and pains and others, like you, don't get symptoms until after many years of taking them. Your doctor may suggest that you try another statin, but that usually doesn't help. I suggest you do some research into cholesterol and you might want to stop taking the statin altogether. Start with Dr. Duane Graveline. He's a former NASA astronaut and doctor. What were your cholesterol numbers and what are they now?
