Well with the reputation that the FDA have and the way that the agency is underfunded, you very much can deduce that money from big pharma gets under the table and the FDA just walk the walk when it comes to turn a blind eye to the thousands of people including children that become casualties every year because oversight on prescribed drugs manufacturers.

Never trust a government agencies when our own politicians are in bed with corporations it can be deadly sometimes.

I am having my second surgery related to shoulder problems, I am a big fan of exercising and do so every day if I can, but so much repetitive movements causes me to build up calcium deposits, I already have surgery on my right shoulder for rotator cuff damage due to calcium and three ruptured pectoral ligaments, this surgery I am having is in my left shoulder to remove the calcium build up before it becomes as bad as it was with my right shoulder.

When it comes to statin, I have been prescribed from crestor, to colestral or colestid (an older one in liquid form), to Lipitor, but within two weeks of taking them I develop terrible cramps in my muscles.

So the only way to stay away from them is keeping my cholesterol good with alternatives and is working.

Thanks so much, for the encouraging post, my doctor is amazing, I would not have the shoulder surgery with anybody else, he did my first one and I recuperated completely.

I also had calcium or spurs in my neck, hips and heels, they are common but when you are active and exercise a lot they tend to build up more due to repetitive movements injuring the same area over and over, sadly when we are young we don't feel it as much, but once we reach certain age and still active, that's when they start to become a problem.

I am no fan of pain killers so I will not take anything that is too strong because the problem with side effects.
