Statins and sex or Statins and chronic pain

To take or not to take, I’ve been prescribed statins for cholesterol. Allegedly, I have slightly high cholesterol, high by 0.6 above the averaged out baseline. Now I reckon that it’s a good bet that I don’t need the statins and an improvement in my diet and exercise will deal with it. Also, averaged out in the population as a whole and what the range is (I’ve forgotten my statistical terminology this morning) I think I’ll be ok for the time being.

Yet, statins have been shown to improve erectile dysfunction and anything that makes my cock harder is good as far as I’m concerned. But statins can also cause chronic pain and a form of muscular dystrophy.

To use a phrase of my grandads when in doubt do nowt.
