Sir David Nicholson, the former chief executive of NHS England (National Health Service England), stopped taking his statin because of “debilitating” side effects according to an article in the UK newspaper The Sunday Times.
Nicholson was quoted as saying, “I was getting muscle and joint pain. It was getting worse and worse. It was mild to begin with and I kind of thought it was because I was getting old. I stopped taking them for a week and I got better.”
“The muscle pain probably started in May or June 2013. It got really bad towards the last two or three months. I was struggling with sleep.”
