My cholesterol is a bit high at 216 for the total count. LDL at 147, HDL at 48,and Triglycerides at 104. My doctor put me on Crestor 1 month ago. Since then I have had muscle aches and pains, constipation , and a small amount of weight gain.When I ran out of the crestor I decided I would try alternative therapies as I have read so many bad things about statins
