After a fantastic and relaxing holiday, I thought I would bite the bullet and go back to my GP to see if we can start again on lowering my Cholesterol.
I started 10mg of Pravastatin at 10pm last night. 4am this morning my knees, thighs and fingers were aching terribly, it is so bad that you just do not know what to do. I managed to get back to sleep around 6am.
I then woke with the alarm at 7am as usual, feeling fine.
I will give it another go tonight but as these are the same symptoms I have had in the past, I am not expecting any miracles and as I have a very busy and demanding job. I cannot afford to go without my sleep or for further down the line be totally incapacitated by these drugs.
I wanted to do the right thing and take responsibility for lowering my cholesterol. I sometimes wonder if ignorance is bliss? and to hell with it.
