Sorry guys that I have been silent but I had a very bad reaction to Lipitor. I had gone to the doctor and she didn't like my A1C (it was at 7.4) so switched my meds and didn't like the cholestrol (107) so raised the dosage of Lipitor. That was all it took. I ended up not being able to walk, sleep, move, even stand do to pain and muscle weakness. Then I find out that there is a rare but potentially fatal side effect to Lipitor that can show up as pain and muscle weakness. AHHHH, well, why do you give a med that can cause that to someone who has arthritis and fibro? So, off the meds and I called doc and tell her I stopped the meds and why. She then prescribes Crestor (another statin with the same side effects). I decided not to take it until I can determine how much pain I deal with on a regular basis. Well, let's just say I am NOT going to take either. I can function WAY better with either.
So I will be back harassing people. :) You have been warned.
