Well I messed up by drifting off of my diet. Looks like it will be a restart at this point. No excuses really, I just don’t like being hungry and the opportunity to eat things I like presented itself.
In good news, getting off of Lipitor had brought major relief for muscle, joint, and back pain. I’ve got to let my doctor know, and I don’t know what his next recommendation will be, but thank goodness I can get off of a bed without crawling up a dresser to do it for the first time in months. I knew that the pain I was feeling couldn’t possibly be normal. I understand that some discomfort might be expected with the trade-off of lowering cholesterol, but when Lipitor side effects kick in, it definitely effects your quality of life.
