So my cholesterol is high, well over 7, tho got it to 6.3 using sterols and oatbran. Dr said too high but was concerned about statins as I have fibro, and didn't want me to suffer even more pain! Just heard of someone advised to take statins, refused, and had a heart attack 2 months later. No idea what my level is ATM, Dr has offered me another test, but feels it's not an easy decision to put me on stations. Anyone out there taking statins although they have fibro, and do you have even more pain?
