Hello, and thanks to anyone who can help me figure this out. I've been on Lipitor 10 mg for over 4 years. All was fine until about 3 weeks ago. Began with stomach problems that seem to have cleared up. Now I'm experiencing MAJOR muscle pains - burning, tingling everywhere. I've stopped the Lipitor as of 1 week ago. My doctor is very supportive and feels the Lipitor is probably the cause of the symptoms, although says it is unusual to experience symptoms so long after initiating the drug treatment. I'm wondering how long these side effects will last? When can I expect to feel some relief? Thanks much. I'm tired of hurting.
