Is there any connection with statin use and neuropathy? I have had numbness and tingling in my hands and fingers, along with severe cramping at night. One NP thought this was carpel tunnel, but my doc does not think so. Any thoughts?

I use a few different ones but my favorite is LifeFlow Magnesium Lotion – https://www.amazon.com/Life-Flo-Magnesium-Supplement-Zechstein-Relaxation/dp/B00K5QUAIG/ref=dp_fod_1. The other one is Aveeno moisturizing lotion – https://www.amazon.com/Aveeno-Moisturizing-Sensitive-Unscented-Therapeutic/dp/B0013OJUY4/ref=sr_1_7.

I think any good lotion you like is OK as long as it keeps your skin from drying out but I'm not too particular 🙂

Stick to creams as they are less drying. Eucerin skin calming or eczema creams are good. Some like CERAV.

I find benedryl cream helps with the tingles. My wild guess is that no impinged nerves are causing this as you are okay at night!

Thank you Marye2. You’re right. Nothing at night. What a great suggestion the Benadryl cream! Will try it.
