I have tried many statins but suffered awful side effects.
My GP thinks I’m imagining it!
So new statin started 2 weeks ago, I thought this was the one!
I had a sore shoulder but had been shifting furniture so assumed I had pulled a muscle.
We are away on a break and on Wednesday evening I had a Pink Grapefruit gin.
The whole of the evening I was in excruciating pain, in the morning I put 2 and 2 together and read the leaflet that came with my new statin.
There it was…..shoulder pain!
Statin now stopped but I cannot emphasise enough the extra pain the grapefruit caused.
It was off the scale.
I had assumed you would have to eat loads for a reaction.
