I am 68 years old, have had three angioplasties, am presently on lipitor and am experiencing fatigue and weakness. Also, extreme indigestion, gas, cold feet and cold head. A three year strict diet did not alter my chloresterol from 240, HDL36. Because of no results with diet, I was put on Lescol and had a reaction. Then was put on Prevacol, had another reaction. Then was put on Lipitor. I tolerated it well, at least I thought so. Been on it for over two years. Recently had blood work done. Cholersterol 136, HDL 36. The comparison indicated that this is too low. My blood pressure is normally low, usually 100/60 to 110/70. Can the fatigue ,weakness,cold feet, cold head, indigestion and gas be due to the Lipitor? I have questioned the doctor about reducing the dosage but have not recienved an answer.Can the Cleveland Clinic check my entire ciriculatory system as well as my digestive tract in the interest of finding the cause of these symptoms?
