After having a mild heart "attack" (clogged arteries, two stints) 5 years ago, they gave me pills to lower my blood pressure and heart rate. Having clogged blood veins through out my body, I had trouble with almost passing out when I bent over and stood up, stacking fire wood. And had the worst leg cramps of my life soon after I got out of the hospital because the pills that relieve the pressure in my arteries.

So I don't take the Lowsartin at the same time as the Carvidalol. And they tried to get me to take Methocarbim for the leg cramps. But I have had good success with reducing leg cramps by taking the Homeopathic remedy called “Leg Cramps” that desolve under the tong.

It is almost impossible to drink enough water. But I don't think that is the primary problem. I never have light-headedness nor much muscle twitching in my chest (angina?) any longer.

They declared me to be slightly diabetic when I was in the hospital and prescribed Metformin, but I don't remember the cardiac rehab people saying anything about muscle pain. Other than stretching them helps.

My new heart doctor said that people don't have pain while using their muscles, only soreness after exercise. Well that sounds crazy to me, but I do ride a 70-80lb cycle-truck that when fully loaded is around 400lbs. This would not be problem on flat land, but we have hills here.

When talking about my sugar addiction he said that insulin is a stress hormone.
Is there is a connection between insulin and this muscle problem?

Or is it more likely the muscles are just not getting enough blood flow? And there is nothing that can be done. I have been researching how to get enough protein for recovery and am working on eating more vegetables in the form of Kim Chi, the super food invented hundreds of years ago.

Maybe I should get some algae protein powder?
