    I agree with Fish Oil. I am back taking them and my legs feel stronger. No dull ache.

    If you have muscle spasms, lack of water is one of the major problems. This is from my Doctor. Lots of water. If I fail in that I have all kinds of problems.

    Cut the pop and drink water.

    Yes... the best (albeit not very good tasting) is "udo's choice", if you can handle it, go for liquid form, it's like 10 pills for a spoonful.

    Also, magnesium is a good supplement for muscle aches (and migraines),

    Also, in terms of oils, MCT oils are also a great supplement.

    It WILL catch up with you. It's just a matter of time.

So I started taking a blood pressure med soon after that which is Atenolol.

    My doctor has me off of the statin drug to see if that's it and it seems I am better but still irritable but no where near as much. Could be psychological too.

    Could be be the Atenolol too although the drug is actually used to calm people down other than for blood pressure. However my doctor says sometimes drugs have an opposite effect in some people.

    Thoughts?

    Now I'm dealing with GERD for some reason. I stopped drinking coffee and carbonated drinks but it's lingering.
    Rhabdomyolysis is always a potential in statins, get thee to a doc and checked out quickly

    Funny, but in my family the smokers tended to die from popped aneurysms.

    I'm on lovastatin and I get leg cramps. Go figure. I guess they just effect us all differently.

    I had a aneurysm 7 years ago behind my right eye. I was having headaches and my wife talked me into seeing one of her Docs she works for. She worked at a hospital in Seattle in the neurosurgery dept. Lucky me. A spinal tap was negative and so was the CT Scan. Didn't find it until they did the Angiogram. Big as a blueberry. Surgery was hell but I'm alive to tell about.

    Moral of the story. Listen to your wife.

    They think that smokers have a higher chance of developing aneurysms because smoking weakens the walls of the arteries.
