Mar 5, 2018 · Is there any connection with statin use and neuropathy? in Neuropathy

I agree with you. I tried three different kinds of statins and each one was worse than the other. Muscel spasms, joint pain, and with Livalo I also ended up with neuropathy. I will not take another statin.

Same problem here. I have tried three different kinds of statins and had severe joint pain, muscle spasms and now on Livalo I have had neuropathy in my fingers at night. Thought it was from arthritis at first. But got suspicious and stopped the Livalo and within days the neuropathy has gone as well as the extreme joint pain. I do have arthritis but it has never been as bad as it was on the statins. Statins make my arthritis much worse and the muscle spasms kept me up at night. The neuropathy was the last straw for me. Very scary. I never had symptoms like this before the statins. I am now off them, and I am back to normal. I was put on statins because my LDL was creeping up and was only slightly high. I won't take another statin again.
