hello everybody, thankyou all very much for taking the time to reply to me regarding long term statin use, so here is my update on the situation..... yesterday I went to my doctor telling him of the leg muscle pains and fatigue so he took some blood samples to check liver function also an enzyme in the muscles, this morning he actually phoned me at home saying to stop the statin for two weeks then have another blood test done because both the liver function and muscle test raised concern, and apparently (unknown to me) my last blood tests showed a high level of something in my liver, forgotten what he called it!! so now I'm scared to death that my liver is damaged, also that not taking the statin will cause my cholesterol to rocket, a vicious circle or what? the next two weeks will be nail biting believe me.
