About a month ago I started getting numbness in my hands and wrists and eventually up to my elbows. I work with computers all day so I thought it could be carpul tunnel and later tried adjustments on the bike. I looked in the Forums and found reference to how Shokhead's cholesterol meds had done this to him, and checked in with my Doc. Sure enough I'm off Pravachol now and things are improving. One of the side effects is muscle deterioration. I'm praying the pain goes away and the strength comes back, but it seems to be a gradual process.
At any rate: Watch the Meds ... They'll Kill Ya!
