Do Statins slow you down?
I have angina but I get it in my arms , a numbness in the elbow area.
I was put on statins and atenenol (beta-blockers). My pulse is now upper 40s instead of upper 50s and my cholesterol was in the 4s before the tests and the pills that followed. I am now heavier because I am so lethargic. The only time I feel well is when I stop taking the tablets. I even get a numb bum after an hour when driving due to reduced circulation due to the pills. I am 59.
Look forward to some answers from readers.
