My problems started recently after taking a statin, Ive since, felt muscle tenderness and weakness aswell as dizziness, out of breath at times when speaking, very hot flushes and a raised heartrate while the flush occurs, I havent been able to exercise as jusst walkin seems to send my heart rate into overdrive, Im also getting chest pain particularly on my left side. Im also getting flushes in my toe. I can also feel water on my chest.
Problem is these things sort of come in spells, and are not always present.
I honestly believe its cardiomyopathy as my muscles are weak in themselves.
Ive been to a&e once before taking the statin panicking now from then on they think its all anxiety, my heart rate was 140 bpm, then 100, they took two ecgs when they told me they wouldnt take one and then got onto the phone with a consultant who said no further action needed, probably because they think its anxiety, anyway, I literally cant live like this, had blood tests came back fine, but showed my kidney working hard now its improving, but I literally feel dizzy and weak even lying down on the computer.
The other day i measured my pulse and there were lots of skipped beats that had me taking breaths in my throat like catching breath, when i mentioned this at a &e they said it was normal they refuse to do more tests.
