Hi. I have been prescribed the 4. statin Type and can‘t tolerate either. I am getting pains in my thighs and it makes walking difficult.
I had a stroke 4 years ago due to AF. Statins are prescribed for cardiovascular problems.
Am I right in thinking that the clot developed due to the hr irregularities and not through cardiovascular problems. My colesterol was only 5.3
Please can anyone explain why it should be so important to take statins. I had an angiogram 4 years ago and no problems detected. All arteries free.
Will my life expectancy greatly improve while taking statins?
Thanks for any thoughts about this
