just reading your stories and wanted to reply. I had been taking zocor for only 2-3 months. All the sudden I was unable to walk, the pain in my legs and hips were pretty intense. I callled my cardiologist and she had me take blood tests that confirmed I had myositis all my muscles. So I had to quit taking it. Now I am on zetia and have no problems. I guess we all react to meds in very different ways.
Blessings to you all,
