Statins and peripheral neuropathy
Has anyone here been diagnosed with Peripheral Neuropathy caused exclusively from orally ingesting a statin medication for 8 years? I have never had diabetes or high Cholesterol.

Since you mentioned you have never had high cholesterol, do you mind me asking what condition were you being treated for with statins?
Hi, @dutchman09 – you may have noticed that I moved your post here to this existing discussion on statins and neuropathy so you can talk with others also interested in this topic. Is this what you feel has led to neuropathy in your case?
I have had neuropathy for the last 14 years. The doctors only gave me pills that are not helping. I would like to have a stem cell done but I cannot afford it. It seems that the pain is getting worse. Yesterday I must of yelled 10 times the pain was so bad.
