I have had a double heart by-pass op, three strokes and a carotid artery clearance op. I am brand new again, but lately I have been getting dizzy. So I went back to the doctor. It might be psychological, due to ne gasses, or my medication might need adjusting. Whatever it is will be fixed. When you are old. you need to keep doing what needs to be done, to keep you alive. When you give up, you are dead.This is anecdotal, but I was having some 'moderate' blockage in one of my carotid arteries. Cardio doc had been trying to get me on statins for years and nothing worked, that is I can't tolerate it. GP told me to try taking CO-Q10 with the smallest statin that was best for me. Well, that worked, actually I think that's when the dizziness went away, and the brain fog too, I just felt better generally. Last time I had the sonogram, my blockage was 'normal' for my age. But I really doubt the statin cleared up my blockage. You have to try lots of things, everyone is different. What bugs me is some days I feel like crap and then get to thinking I'll be like this all the time, but it does seem to clear.
Sun's over the yardarm, I'm going up for some Jamesons.
