Comments from related studies:
From this study (6 months ago):
A little over a month ago I had my dosage raised from 20 mg to 40 mg of Crestor. Since then I have noticed an increase in pain in my upper abdominal wall. It definitely feels like it is in the muscular wall and not internal. I guess you could describe the pain as doing a very intense upper ab workout where it almost hurts to move when you are done. physical activity where you strain your core is bothering me now and I am trying to figure out what may be the cause. This dosage increase is the only change I have had in the time period mentioned
