RE: [IPk] RE: statins problems

Julie hi,

I was on Lipitor and then had joint/muscle problems- I moved onto
Simvastatin 40mg
But have not been great about taking this. 
My Chol was 6.2 without statins- so I have just  Re-started them.
BUT having read the conversations on here- I am amongst the many confused !!

Hi I take Lipitor and asked the doctor if I could change as I seemed to be
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.
