My father in law was diagnosed with ALS about 3 weeks ago. He was previously on Lipitor for 3 years and went off of it about a year ago. He started to have digestive problems and when he asked the doctor if it was a side affect from Lipitor the doctor said no. Once the problems didn't go away he took it upon himself to go off of Lipitor and his digestive issues went away. But then came the muscle twitches and from Aug. to Nov. his left hand became pretty much useless. Currently he has slowed down his walking and has had some problems with his right hand as well and slurres his speach. Has anyone else claim that a statin drug such as Lipitor caused their illness?
