Statin Problems

Took various statins for 10 years. Many side effects such as cramps, muscle and joint pain, loss of memory, and muscle weakness during this time. Couldn't bend to tie my shoes.
Thought I was dying. Sold my business because of these conditions.
Finally discontinued statins after consulting my cardiologist and within two weeks started feeling better. His comment was that not everyone can tolerate them.
That was two yrs ago. Memory returned, muscle strength returned and pain is gone. Total cholesterol is 220. HDL is 50. LDL is 158. Now able to exercise everyday and I feel great.

Glad you were able to recover. Sorry to hear you had to sell your business because of statin side effects, but you are not the only one who couldn't continue with their work from these drugs.
