A little over a year ago I begin to have a dull ache in my chest while out of town on business. I went to the ER and was admitted to the hospital for 3 days. Numerous tests were run, with only positive results. The doctor told me if the pain persisted I probably needed to see a cardiologist. I only had a few episodes until the last couple of months. I am very fatigued, have a dull ache daily in my chest, and often feel short breathed. I have been recently been diagnosised with mild Sleep Apnea. Has anyone else had the same symptoms. I don't want to wait if something is wrong with my heart, but I don't want to go to the doctor unnecessarily. I have been on Lipitor for 4 years, and I have a family history of heart disease.
When taking statin medications you want to supplement coenzyme Q10. If you are not, you may have a deficiency causing your symptoms. I recommend discussing with your phsyician. Here is information on coenzyem Q10:
