I may be stupid and that is one answer but if i am not then someone may have the answer for me. Either way i get a result. I had a heart attack followed by a quad bypass(during which i suffered cardiac arrest) and was found to have FH. My current total chol is 4.5. I had been taking medication(Bisoprolol and Candesartan) for high blood pressure for 30+years. Aspirin and statins were then added to my medication. First i took Atorvastatin and then Simvastatin but stopped taking these due to really erratic memory loss problems. I also had the occassional slightly slurred speech problems. Sometimes the words would just not come out! I recently began taking Rosuvastatin 20mg in the hope i would not suffer the same side effects on this statin. I still have memory and speech problems. I am not old and going senile and my memory problems only started after my heart attack and since taking statins. Now which one has caused it i ask? Now the stupid bit....since taking Rosuvastatin my big toes are really painful, especially the right one. I have had a broken toe before and that is exactly what it feels like. The pain is really bad sometimes and i can hardly walk because of it and the lack of use in my toes. Can anyone offer any advice please?
I used to post on here fairly regularly and intend to do so again. My absence has been due to spinal surgery, old broken discs removed and replaced with new ones.... plus a little carpal tunnel op! Your comments would be most appreciated.
