Hi everyone i'm new to this site. I had an appointment last Friday at the lipid clinic, I thought i had done the right thing in starting to take my cholesterol tablet again. At my appointment i saw a young Doc who has to report to the main man for instruction. He was testing al my muscles for pain as I have some very tender one and suffer with cramps. He came back from talking to the consultant and told me to stop taking the cholesterol tablet. Also he is going to take my notes before a group of Doctors and see if they agree to me having a muscle biopsy. I was wondering what this is for and what will it show. I should have asked. Any idea people.
