Relief at last!

Postby baseballgirl » Sun Oct 22, 2006 4:58 pm

I am a 55 year old RN who has been on statins for almost 15 years, including mevacor, lipitor, zetia, and most recently, vytorin. For years I have had muscle and joint pain throughout my body,and muscle cramps in legs and feet. My CPK, CK and liver enzymes are always normal. Then several months ago, the insomnia started. My internist felt none of this was related to the statins. Thank God I found your site. After the first two doses of carnitine and coq 10, my muscle pain literally began to vanish. I could not believe the difference in my pain level. I also take my omega 3's, b6, 12, folic acid, and low dose aspirin. I feel like a new person! Up until now I thought everyone needed to be on statins, but no more. My labs will be repeated in February 2007. I'll keep you posted.
