Does anyone suffer from muscle pain in both their thighs

For the last 6 months I’ve been experiencing muscle pain in both my thighs I have a bad back but that usually doesn’t cause a problem I was taking a statin and thought it might be the cause but I stopped it for a month and pain didn’t go away it gets worse at night and it’s hard to stand or walk when this happens I’m a pretty active person and this is difficult I went back on statin and are stopping again hoping it will help any idea would be appreciated

Hello~Sometimes Statins can cause this, and even when stopping, the pain may not go away immediately.

I have one suggestion, possibly seeing a chiropractor will help this issue. The chiropractor will take x-rays of the area, study them and then go over the results with you. Sometimes a few treatments are all a person needs to get back on the road to recovery and being pain-free.

I would also try adding an extra supplement of Vitamin D3 and a good multi-mineral complex to your daily diet, if the body is deficient in these, then pain can certainly be a symptom.

I hope you feel better soon.

I take those vitamins and more I’ll wait and see if this goes away soon
