Hi all, posted an update to my original question, not sure if any of you who replied have seen it as I posted it as a reply so thought I would put a new post here for you to catch up on events.
Wanted to thank you all for your replies and support and thought I would give you an updated on what's happening.
Started on 10mg Ezetrol (ezetimibe) before Christmas before commencing on the low dose statin therapy (5mg Rosuvastatin twice weekly). Should have been on Ezetrol for 4-6 weeks before taking the statin. However after only one tablet the old side effects started so was told to leave them off for a couple of days then start again....took another and back to square one...pain, burning sensations in my back and awful pain in my knee, shoulders and arms.
Now after talking to consultant have been told as I can't tolerate the Ezetrol after only a couple of tablets he dosn't consider it appropriate to commence with the Rosuvastatin even at a low dose. So....where does this leave me? In all honesty in some respects I felt relieved on one hand that I was told not to take the statin as I'd forgotten how bad the pain was that I'd experienced before but having taken the Ezetrol for two days it brought it all back.
However on a positive note I have heard concerning the genetic testing for FH and I go for a meeting in February and to the genetic centre in March for testing.
No idea what will happen after that and still feel quite stressed about things but trying to be more positive.
Have an appointment with my G.P. tomorrow concerning another matter so will discuss things with him.
