Could you say more about intense muscle aches? A muscle in my right leg aches frequently, especialy after an hour or two of driving or sitting, but I would not call it intense. It's been this way for a couple of years. i've taken lipitor for about 6 years.

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.
