I was put on simvastatin in June 2017. Aug 25 2017 I woke up with double vision. Had Ct scan, MRI w/contrast, ultrasound of corodid artery and several blood tests all came back fine stopped simvastatin but still have diplopia how long will it last. Saw ophthalmologist also.

I have been experiencing breast pain and tenderness for a couple of years sporadically and it is really getting me down. I have previously sought treatment to rule out breast cancer Andy all tests have previously come back clear. I have been taking Simvastatin and a previous cholesterol drug for over 7 years. I would really welcome anyone's thoughts and advice on living with this condition. Thank you.
I have taken 80 mg. of Simvastatin since my open heart surgery in 2001. My rectal bleeding started 1 1/2 years ago when a Doctor prescribed Naproxen - that was followed by massive rectal hemorrhaging. My Doctor immediately stopped use of Naproxen, all aspirin and Simvastatin, and the bleeding stopped. Four months later I resumed the nightly Simvastatin at a 1/2 dose and there was no noticable bleeding for 6 months Now morning bleeding occurs when I only take 40 mg of Simvastatin the night before. There is no bleeding when I do not take Simvastatin. My Doctor recommends a 'Colonoscopy' - however the cleansing for my last Colonoscopy 2 years ago nearly killed me, and at 73 years old I am concerned for another one. Has anyone else had a similar experience - and what exactly is bleeding when I take the Simvastatin ??? Jim
Was on lovastatin and woke up one day with a speak delay. Had tests ran indicated that I didn't have a stroke or bleeding on the brain. Still am having trouble speaking. Does anyone know how long this will last?
Glad I found this group. I actually didn't think there was a link with my anemia and Simi until recently. I'll be happy to find out what people have to say and are doing about it as my blood pressure has gone up a lot recently too and I'm looking for nutrition based ways to sort of counteract these symptoms.
