Hi there, just a quick update on the statins that I started about three weeks ago. Two weeks ago (luckily a friend was here), my limbs got weak, my muscles were SORE and so my friend had to help me to bed. I don’t know who was more shocked when she left at quite what was going on. Anyway, the next morning wasn’t much better - I called the doc out who said that I was experiencing the two main side effects (the other being diarrhoea) which didn’t entirely surprise him and he advised stopping them straight away.
So, a worthwhile experiment (the hope being halting of disease progression) but not for me it would appear. So, back to the drawing board. There seems to be a lot of talk about research into progressive MS at the moment - bring on that breakthrough yeah? Debs x
