PXE Leg Pain Study

How does exercise impact the pain of intermittent claudication (lower leg pain)?

Statins and leg pain

Cholesteriol  lowering drugs (statuns) may cause leg pain. At least Simvastatin. I am presently testing if stopping to use Atorvastatin wil decrease my leg pain.

Stopping Atorvastatin increased my cholesterol which got the doctors worried about increased risk of stroke.

I have restarted it but only take it 3 times a week to and that is sufficient to keep my cholesterol low (below 4) and means I don't suffer the side effects.
