I have been taking a statin drug x 2 months. Started having severe joint and muscle pain especially in knees and hip. Should I discontinue use? It is interfering with daily worouts and normal activities.

I would get a new shoe and test out this theory. ...Read more

Joint pain originates in soft tissue pain transducers within tendons & ligaments surrounding joints.
