Why does your doctor prescribe Welchol for increased cholesterol? What about statins-Lipitor, Crestor? They are not advisable for people with ongoing hepatitis, but if you are SVR there should be no problem. They are much better tolerated than Wellchol.
I wonder if it's cholesterol drug related, b/c I've been on pravastatin and niaspan for 3-4yrs, but endo.(diabetes dr)put me on Crestor instead in '08. Very first night this happened to me---very strong, and very scary. I've thought of possibility of stroke on the horizon. (Awful thought!!! ) Since '08 it's happened off and on several times(went off Crestor right away--thinking that was causing. Just happened again a couple days ago, and this morning.
Exactly the same symptoms here - I have Diabetes so the first thought was that my blood sugar was out of control so that I might be getting what is known as Diabetic Neuropathy, but after testing my A1c (glucose counts) it was found that was not the case. Since then, every time I mention it to my doctor I get the same response, take some Motrin, it will go away, etc.
