Congrats to you! Your story is really something! I wish you well!
I'm 44 & I was just diagnosed with 50 to 69% blockage of my carotid artery. Three days ago they put me on a simvastatin 40mg coenzyme cq-10 200mg & elavil 50mg but I'm feeling more dizzy now then the day I went in complaining of dizzyness & a headache.
One doctor told me I don't need to changes my activities & just to stay on my low fat diet I've been on. The heart failer doctor didn't say anything about my activities but asked if I bench pressed after answering him he didn't say nothing. Both said they do not believe my dizzyness or headache is from the blockage. Is bench pressing & lifting something I should not do? Should I stop lifting?
