A recent blood test (for something other than my AF) shows I have a high cholesterol of 7.5. I explained to the GP that I have always been high as other members of my family are too. He explained the risks if I don't take statins and prescribed 'simvastatin' ........... just looked at the more common side effects which state fast or irregular heart rate!! Now I don't want to take them.
I have cardiologist appt next week and may wait to ask someone who knows!!
