i hadnt checked my cholesterol in yrs and i know that was stupid, ive always had joint problems, anyways i was at this job fair and they had a health fair in the same gym so i decided since i hadnt checked it in yrs maybe i should see whats going on, i was on meds for it before and its been high before, so i did the blood work at the health and a couple of wks later i get something in the mail and it said it was 363, so i made an appt and saw a doctor who rechecked it cause i had eaten some chocolate calciums that morning, then it was 300, she put me on statins and i just got rechecked and now its 201, if your body is so clogged up with cholesterol does that cause physical pain too? i lost about 15 lbs since then , i would think it would be like something pushing on your joints all the time making it painful like a clogged sink that leaves no room for the water to go thru.or is it the extra vit d ive been taking? ive upped it to stop my bones from being so brittle, any ideas?

Cholesterol itself is not a culprit but a symptom of severe health issues. When the body is in dire straights, it resorts to less-than-perfect repairs to limp on. <br />

Statins do not address the underlying cause of high cholesterol, but only mask that symptom, and cause many more in the process. Consult more than one doctor, see a nutritionist, or a natural doctor, or all of the above.
