I am having terrible leg pain and it occurred to me today that it might be caused by my Statin drug. I used to take Lovastatin and I never had this problem on Lovastatin. But when I was in the hospital with a mini stroke in December they changed my cholesterol medicine to Lipator. I don't recall that this pain started when I first started the Lipitor in fact it really didn't start until about 2 months ago. How do I know for sure that it's the Lipitor causing the problem and not something else? I have a lot of other health conditions going on and one of them is lower back pain. And I have thought of sciatica but this is not sciatica pain. This pain is predominantly from the knees down to the toes. Anybody with any ideas would be appreciated
