About a year following mitral valve replacement
Already having some arthritis,
I did not recognize the (slow)
progression of muscle pain and stiffness as Zocor side-effects until the doctor doubled the dose three months ago.
Within a month,
I found myself in horrible pain,
particularly at night (calves,
I stopped the Zocor one month ago.
Today is the first day I have felt some relief,
and I am praying that the progress will continue.
ZOCOR proved to be HELL for me.
I am a retired psychologist,
and I thought I had a good handle on monitoring my own health!
My prayers are also with anyone out there experiencing these same effects.
I am now relying on Omega fish oil and natural vitamen suppliments.
