RE: [IPk] RE: statins problems

getting joint pains and he said I had to continue to take that one as my
cholesterol was 8 anyone else had this problem

Hi Babs
I seem to remember you said you had problems with water retention? If 
so, that could be the cause of the calf muscles tightness - I suffer 
badly from water retention when it's hot and when I'm sitting around a 
lot, and have the same issue with my calves on those occasions.
