I would try stopping statins first, a known side effect of these is muscle pain and aches

I would agree, but I had two spine surgeons say that even if statin is exacerbating the aches, mri shows impingement of nerves in three locations.
I am slowly resigning myself to surgery. Unless I go for third opinion

I whole heartedly second this recommendation. I tried numerous stains (always doing it on beaverton ski the doc wouldn't say it was due to overuse. Within a few days on each, I could barely walk.
