I have been taking Fluvastatin for nearly a month. Within two weeks I started suffering terrible muscle pains, headaches, very weak, totally exhausted, flushes and feeling very unsteady when i walk.
I went to the Doctor twice and he has told me I am depressed and if I took medication for it I would improve.
I realised last week that it was probably the Statins causing the problem, so four days ago I stopped taking them.
I am feeling very slightly better.
I need to ask three questions.
1. Do Statins affect the ears and balance?
2. Can someone advise how long they take to leave the system?
3. Will I start to feel better soon.
Thanks for any advice. I am quite desperate.
