I am a 43 year old male recently diagnosed with hypo and high cohlesteral. About 80 days ago I bean both synthroid 100mcg and vytorin 10/40.
I have had minor bouts of muscle twitching but over the past week they are becoming worse. I also have signifigant arm pain starting in my shoulder down to my elbow and at times for-arm. I have read that both drugs can cause muscle/joint pain as well as tremors.
I am becoming very scared and am afraid of ALS/MS. I now have pain in both legs and both arms. Pain seems to move around - I'm in so much pain and very scared!!! I am sure I have created symptoms in my mind and am fight off a full blown anxiety attack. Can my pain and tremors be related to the new drugs?
Please help, I am struggeling to keep it together.
