Statin Drugs and Heavy Squats


#1

Do any of you guys on statins have knee pain? I'm not sure if it is coincedence or not but after starting pravastatin I feel more knee pain when climbing stairs, and squats seem more difficult in terms of aches. And yesterday I tore a muscle in my quads performing squats. Is it all in my head? Maybe just old age. (I hit 39 this year!)
