Re: [IPk] RE: statins problems

Hi Di

You are right; I do have water retention but finding the reason for it is
bothering me.  Could be the statins or could be the thyroid problem or
both.  I wanted to join a brand new Spin class tonight but I really don't
think my calf muscles will be able to bear it.  Just feeling them now and
they are rock hard like I have just exercised.  I am trying to drink more
fluids today as I don't drink much at all usually and I know I should.
