muscle pains
Hi Doc, I have a problem whenever I do any form of physical exertion e.g. Golf at the driving range, or simply polishing my car, my muscles ache terribly for many days afterwards (i.e. 5 - 10 days), is this something to be concerned about or is it normal?

C, it’s definitely not normal. It might be due to a drug you’re taking (like cholesterol lowering drugs) or maybe a muscle disease. The best would be to see your doctor and have him make sure that it’s nothing serious. Good luck.
