[COLOR=Indigo][CENTER][B]Hello Jack :wave:[/B] [/CENTER]

[INDENT]I also have taken statin's. I was first prescribed Pra****l and then my doctor had put me on Lipitor. I had taken statins for approximately 19 months. I am very much aware of certain side effects that patient's can suffer from the use of these medication's. While these med's do help control cholesterol they also can cause complication's in some patient's. I myself have a type of PN called Distal Peroneal Neuropathy. But I can't say that my use of Lipitor has caused this because I also have many spinal problems, but I still will not rule it out either. This past summer I was involved with a local newspaper article with a report on statins.

I am very sorry that you also have to suffer with PN, and I pray that it doesn't become permanent. Good Luck with trying to keep your cholesterol & triglycerides levels down.[/INDENT]
