I have been taking Lipitor for a few months, and lately I have been feeling kind of tingly. I had some people tell me it was probably the Lipitor. At work, I went to first aid (for an unrelated problem), and after the nurse wrote down what meds I am taking, she asked me if I felt numb or tingly from the Lipitor, and she was the first person to say anything to me about it, and I told her that I did feel that way sometimes, and she said she gets a lot of people with the same symptoms that take it- it surprised me because I hadnt even mentioned to her that I had been feeling that way. I have since asked a few people if they felt the same way,from taking it, and they said they did sometimes feel like that but never knew what might be the cause. I was just wondering if anyone here is taking the Lipitor and having the same reaction!?

Lipitor: paresthesia means tingling or pins and needles. Less than 2% get it. You dose may be too high. i would talk to your MD ASAP
