I'm a type to diabetic, with neurophy in the legs and now hands. I was taking statins for colesteral. Took for several months and became virtually immoble due to muscle pain throughout legs, back and shoulders. Finally I went to a neurologist and he told me to stop the statins. I have been off of the statins for 6 months. While the muscles have gotten better I still can not do any exercise. I have muscle pain and weakness in legs, arms, back and shoulders just from walking down the hall carrying a cup of coffee. Muscles in hand swell when holding pen, fork, spoon. Jaws get tight wen chewing food. Been taking massages almost every week for 6 months with no relief. Could this be something bigger? CPK readings between 480-570 over the past 6 months.
