Yes your right. I was taking lipitor and had hypothyroidism at the time. My cholesterol was 304 so I had to do something. My doc put me on lipitor to get it down.
I started having terrible pain which started in my upper shoulders then legs and feet. I had never had pain like that. It got to where I could barely walk.
My doc gave me an ANA test to see if I had lupus. She also told me to stop the lipitor to see if that was the problem. A few days after I stopped the statin my pains gradually went away. I was also getting dementia. Could not remember things and had to think very hard what to do next. I am not feeding you a bunch of bull either
Crestor might not do that. Just watch out for any unexplained muscle pain.
I will never take a statin again. I have heard that flaxseed oil will help get your cholesterol down.Have never tried it.
Take care now and watch for muscle pain!!!!
