I have been visiting the Lipid clinic for years, it is always a different registrar and I always need to go through the same scenario. I cannot take any of the statins or ezetimes. I have FH and my cholesterol level at the present time is 11.
My theory is that the statins target where I have Cholesterol build up- my knees, hands, feet and that is why I get such terrible pain if I use statins. The last time I tried within a week I was unable to walk.
I know have visible hard areas of cholesterol, just below my knee and also just above my knuckles on both hands.
I have recently been to the doctor for pins and needles that I am experiencing in both arms and hands(left arm is much worse). They are saying this may be carpel tunnel syndrome. My thinking is it is the Cholesterol blocking blood veins.
I am not saying that I am right, bit I am not getting any positive help and my general health is taking a fast nosedive and I do not know what to do next.
