Thanks for your reply. I am 50yrs. old and had MS for 14 years now. I got my first symptom 14 years ago shortly after I got off the pill and like you feel this triggered my attack. I just started a topical cream which is progesterone, estriol and a small amount of estradiol and hope it helps MS and hot flashes.
My cholesterol is very good (175 total with HDL of 79) so I cannot go on statins.
Good luck and I bet the 80 mg of statin will help you a lot with the MS and cholesterol.
