So I had high cholesterol - 9.6 in UK scale which is pretty high - poor mental health and poor eating fuelled each other.
Was put on a statin which brought it down to 5.2 in 12 weeks ( I had cleaned up my diet as well).
During these 12 weeks I’ve been getting horrible side effects which 2 different doctors are ignoring. Leg swelling and feet too. Blisters on both calves which aren’t hesling up, general joint pain, a lot of fatigue and lower back pump/weakness as well.
Made the decision to stop the tablets today and will let my doctor know on Wednesday.
I’ve purchased red rice yeast, niacin and have policosinol too - any further recommendations to these? I’ll get a repeat blood test in 12 weeks time. I am training but can’t stress how difficult it is to drag myself there and deal with not only exercise but moving around in general.
Any help appreciated.
