I have peripheral neuropathy in both feet, R foot is the worst and It's getting worse, especially when driving and at night. I have researched this, since the cause is unknown. I had taken statin drugs for over 20 twenty years and it seems there have been many studies done that show a relationship between statins and neuropathy. Can't get any answers from doctors and I'm staying off of most meds that have awful side effects like Gabapentin. All the doctors I've seen just brush it off and only try to give me meds for pain which I won't take because of side effects. About 5 years ago I was diagnosed with diabetes 2, just out of the blue. Nobody in my family ever had it & I had no symptoms. I read that statins can cause diabetes. I went off the statins and some months later doctor said I no longer have diabetes. Now, my cholesterol is fine, no diabetes but have peripheral neuropathy and a rare blood disorder. Now I am trying to find out if the blood disease is related to the neuropathy. The pain & numbness is getting worse. I'm feeling that one day I won't be able to drive, but even worse, walking might be difficult. I have read that statins are overprescribed, about 15 million Americans take them and new guidelines propose 13 million more patients may be prescribed statins as a preventative measure. This makes me wonder………………….
