Hi Barbara, Just read your comments. I just consulted one of my resources on drugs and supplements. Lipitor is the product name for Atorvastatin. " Atorvastatin is a member of the statin group of lipid- lowering drugs. It is used to treat hypercholestrerolemia ( high blood cholesterol levels) in patients who have not responded to other treatments, such as a special diet, and are at risk of developing heart disease.
I have type 2 diabetes and was diagnosed in 2005. Just before Christmas I started attending a Gym. After using various pieces of equipment I noticed buzzing in my hand and legs. I have since been diagnosed with Carpal Tunnel syndrome and am waiting to have surgery, this goes some wsy to explaining the numbness, buzzing and tingling in my hands but not in my legs. The buzzing isn't present all the time. I have stopped going to the gym.

I have muscle spasm in or around the ribs on both sides (in the front under the breast and sometimes in the back at the same horizontal position), it feels like a ball rolling, in that it switches sides. It occurs even at night during sleep, painful enough to wake me. I only know that when I relax and stretch (the side where the knot is) using several positions I have to wait till it goes away, in many cases to have it return in other places described above.

Thank you so much for your very helpful suggestions. I've made an appt to see my GP on Tues. about having a sleep study. My daughter did suggest this years' ago. I've been to ENT who did'nt suggest anything apart from Sterimar, which I;m taking but it only helps briefly. I was expecting them to take some bloods to check for Sjogren's syndrome, but was very disappointed; must have spent all of three minutes in the clinic!
Hi...I hope this is the right place because it is about the most important person in my life.My mother is a type 2 diabetic since the last 4 yrs, shes 45 yrs old. Shes already on zoryl-3 (glimepiride 3mg),piodart-15(pioglitazone 15mg), X-met( metformin 500 mg) besides that she is on antihypertensives( ramipril and hydroclorthiazide), allopurinol, hypolipidemic (atorvastatin).

Atorvastatin has just been added to the VA formulary and my doctor jumped at the chance to switch me from Zocor. I have noticed a significant increase in the level of peripheral neuropathy in both my feet and hands. The pain is chronic and extreme and I am wanting to know if there are any new studies indicating a connection between these symptoms and the lipitor? I am getting desperate!!!!!
is it the side effects? Tonact is Atorvastatin a drug in the group of statins which is used for high cholesterol. It is usually a safe drug. Main side effects are elevated liver function tests and and a condition called rhabdomyolysis. But these are not very common. Stopping the medication will depend on your cholesterol levels after taking the medication and your other problems like high BP, diabetes, family history of heart problem etc.
My questipn, however, is about whether statin drugs will raise blood sugar, causing pre-diabetes or diabetes? My paternal grandma has type 1 and my maternal uncle has type 2 diabetes. In the past 6 months, besides rapid weight loss, I also experienced fatigue, weakness, cold feet, dizziness, sudden drop of blood pressure, increased thirst and trips to restroom, low grade fever on and off with left side abdominal pain.
The benefits will be noticed in weeks as the sugar level is checked daily.Over the long term the diabetes will be in full control.

Establish a rhythm and do for 15 to 30 minutes twice a day. Children under 15 years – do 10 to 15 minutes twice a day. Not for pregnant women.
He wakes up chomping his teeth and then breaks out in an awful sweat and also has amnesia for about 2 hours afterwards. We thought it was the Amantadine but we have discontinued that the past week. We had another episode last night. All of these episodes take place at night. He had an EEG done and it did show some abnormality but it was medicine related. His tremors have never gotten under control since his diagnosis. I guess we are at our wits end as to what to do next.

Since March I have experienced slight tingling in my toes and stronger tingling in my fingers (sometimes my lower arms) when in bed. I had a heart attack on 13 June but the hospital cardiologist thought the tingling might be nerve related. So at first my doctor assumed Carpal tunnel syndrome and I have been wearing wrist braces at night.
My mother who will be 80 next month was often complaining of breathlessness, weakness and pain sometimes in her chest and rib cage. Her daily BP count was never over 140/85 but pulse was high, always between 90 to 105. She is not obese, no diabetes or any serious ailments. Of late her breathlessness was getting worse, with loss of appetite and feeling of weakness. We had several ECG's and an Echo ( doppler) test done and turned out negative.
Increased dietary intake of fiber rich foods like oat bran will help. Diet should be rich in antioxidant vitamins found primarily in fruits and vegetables. Reduce energy intake to achieve ideal body weight. Avoid alcohol consumption. Exercise regularly, it is multi beneficial in that besides helping to lose weight and reduce cholesterol levels, it reduces stress and helps improve blood supply to the heart. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
the first one resulted in a soft landing on a female friend's chest(!), but the second resulted in (apparently) bouncing across asphalt on my head (resulting in being 'glued back together') and a twisted spine or surrounding tissue/skeleton (still being treated by an osteopath). As a result of all of this I have spent two spells in my local hospital whilst they checked everything - blood pressure, ECGs, trunk X-rays, skull scans, etc., etc.
I have for the past few months suffered from what appears to be Burnt Mouth Syndrome, nothing to see in my mouth such as sores etc and my saliva seems fine. I find this a mild irritation. I showed my tongue to my GP and he said there was nothing that looked sinister.

I agree with changing to a stronger statin like atorvastatin (Lipator). Is location of calcium in vessels that one would normally see see first develop CAD? Not sure if there is a literature supported answer to this question. Does my particle size suggest plaque within the vessel itself? Again, not sure how to answer this question. You are on a great statin medication now. I would continue the atorvastatin and even consider increasing it.
