But, since then I am having vision surrounded by semi-blackness, difficulty in seeing things in bright sunlight as also inside the house as if like in semi black out. Things seem to be semi dark.

Kindly clarify and help me. Also please tell me the lifestyle I should follow in detail.
If you are going to choose a statin, I would ask your Doctor to consider Lipitor (atorvastatin). This is the only statin shown in trials to actually stop atherosclerosis progressing when used agressively. The best other statins have achieved is a 2.4% growth of the disease. The main concern with this powerful statin is the cost, but tests have given remarkable results.
I haven't yet seen a report explaining in detail how atorvastatin can increase sugar levels. I have seen 'experts claim' in many statements, but no chemical information as to how this occurs. As far as I know, whether on statins or not, those patients may have developed increased sugar levels. Ironically, thousands of diabetic patients put onto a trial gave the results that coronary events and strokes dropped by a third.
Well again British political imperialism ended in India in 1947 but imperialism of English language is growing very fast in India.It appears that it is a matter of time that all Indian languages will extinguish but then the English in India will not be the same as the English in Britain or America today.
My reason is driven mainly by the fact the Tartrate is about 1/6th the cost of the Suc (ER). That said, I wonder if I will not in fact have a more "level" medication concentration taking the 25 mg twice rather than the 50 mg ER once a day. I think there is a good possibility that I'll have a more uniform medication concentration (on average) taking the Tartrate twice a day. Or, I have my doubts about how well a ER holds up over 24 hours.

did that blockage form in a des? u said u had a total occlusion in the lad like myself, was it there? what meds did they give u after clearing cto. also r u still having angina like symptoms that had no 'clinical' cause. that resonated with me. lastly do u have high blood pressure? I do not. also how often do u get angiograms? ps. frustration stems from two top guys looking at same thing and one says 20% stenosis and the other doesn't see it. this makes no sense to me.
In cereals we get mong dal with its upper cover other dals we i am trying to get them. Here in india most of our people eats polished rice.

//www.lab-cerba.com I was tested there but not by post they do good hbsag quantitive test. it is a big lab and they seem to accept samples by post, because they have international dept, they also have english speaking staff, and even answer e-mails.

Now after seeing CT he ( as well as the radiologist) told me that CT angio is not very reliable and variation may be +-10-20%.I have been advised to go for catheter angiography. In India, if one goes for this procedure most hospitals/doctors whould ask for stent/s as they make more money. I am wondering if medication may help for the time being and angiography/plasty could be postponed.

Same problem of smelling smoke, like something is on fire in my home. I am in the process of finding out the problem and am investigating all possibilities I find.
is caused from blocked Eustachian tubes, which results in a pressure buildup in the inner ear. This condition is normally caused by prolonged taking of anti-histamines and antibiotics which can cause a thickening of the mucous in the inner ear. Excess inner ear mucous would normally simply drain out through the Eustachian tubes but is prevented from doing so because it has become too thick to drain out of the very narrow Eustachian tubes.
All on the left side, below the heart,, in the side, sometimes in the back of the shoulder, and above the breast. Can not walk at a normal pace. Walk very slowly to control the pain. Cardiologist suggested cardio rehab which will begin in a few weeks. But have not heard of anyone else with such symptoms. Don't know if I should risk walkin through the pain, or if it is a symptom that should be further pursued, and or tested. All of my blood work, tests have come back normal so far.
For about 6 weeks I have been experiencing mid back pain when I wake up in the morning. The pain is so bad, I cannot go back to sleep, and NO position change helps. I must get out of bed and start walking around or sit in a chair for the pain to start going away. After an hour or two, the pain basically disappears. The pain seems to be emanating from my spine, and tensing up the back muscles nearest the spine.
This has some molecular and genetic explanation which has something to do with alcohol metabolism in the body. In the absence of other symptoms though (eg weight loss,changes in bowel movement,neurological deficits) ,this may not be very urgent. One important thing to exclude here though is an allergic reaction.Watch out for any diffiulty of breathing, rash that involves the entire body and generalized sensation of flushing. Continue to have a close follow up with your doctor.
