GADS Phil!! You have become a human biochemical disposal unit!
Somehow I missed that newsletter from SpaceDoc. Thanks for posting link. I do have personal experience with walking NOT BEING a good thing to do, however, that had to do with factors preceeding my taking Lipitor by over a decade. This was correctly diagnosed and a fix provided by an alert PT -- unfortunately, everythings else she provided was pretty much useless.
Lately I have come to recognize that chronic lower back pain and suseptability to debilitating muscle spazms was added by Lipitor and are extensively gone now.
At moment, I am heading in exactly opposite direction as regards medications. I am trying to get rid of final two, Nexium and Travatan Z (a glaukoma eye drop). My supplement list for statin damage is very similar to yours.
Yes it's a big list but I have a lot on my plate. 30 yrs. ago I had a bad head injury and it damaged my Pituitary in my brain. This contorls your how much hormones your body makes. Due to this it's called Hypopituitary I need to take them meds and supplements.
I had to have heart bypass surgery not due to high Chol. levels but from having low hormones for them yrs. I had to 99% blockages going to my heart.
I get so dam mad about this Stain crap after all the things I have been through the last 30 yrs I need this like I need a hole in my head.
Today I was able to get in to my spa on my deck off my bedroom man did that feel good I have it set at 101 deg.'s. Being on the Ultram my pain is much better and I as able to get into and out of the spa with very little help. I did some leg exercises in the spa. I just got out about an hour ago and I still feel good from it.
