I Am Wondering If Anyone Has Suffered Severe Muscle Pain That Has Been Attributed To Statins?

I have been taking statins for four years without any seemingly big side effects. However, in the last six months, I have developed severe pain in my hips and legs, enough that I cannot sleep without pain medication. Can it be the statins?
