    No not a woman.

    Thank you as always for your thoughtful posts.

    Would't even dream of smoking. Almost all the people I know that smoked are already dead of lung cancer.

He still has balance issues, but because he has heart disease they feel he needs to stay on it. He can be ornery, too. Not sure if that is the cause or not, though.
    The first Statin I took gave me terrible leg cramps. I now take Lovastatin.. Been on it for some time. No problems.

    For God's sake, don't elicit medical advice from a on-line forum.

    Talk directly to a physician. I'd suggest a board certified physician.

    Of course you are. Doctors hang out on pissy little political forums dispensing medical advice to the inane and foolish at all hours. Carry on!

    So many people react differently to things. Hydrocodone, for instance, puts most people to sleep. It makes me hyper (I love that stuff, I guess to me it's like cocaine).

    Anything could make any of us irritable or anything else that doesn't do the same to others. I hope you find a resolution.

    He is just asking for comparisons. I am quite sure he listens to his Doctor.
