ab I doubt this is statin-induced myopathy which generally doesn't occur in a single muscle group. A simple test called creatinine kinase (or creatinine phosphokinase) can diagnose it along with muscle pain typically in the back, hips, and/or legs.

Thank you for the reply. My last blood work lists a creatinine of 1.1 mg/dl (just says creatinine without adding the word kinase or phosphokinase) so if that's the same thing, then I guess all is well.
Thanks again,
Ted
