Statins can they affect your cognitive skills?

I had a heart attack about a year ago. It was a SCAD, which means it had nothing to do with my cholesterol which was actually quite good, but they had to put in stents and the Carido Doc insisted I go on statins. Ok, fine but in a few weeks I noticed a slight decline in my ability to recall the right words. When I'm typing I often skip letters, entire words, or mess up the order of letters. When I'm really tired, I have moment when I jumble up the words in a sentence or can't even speak English. I have to stop and think hard to get a sentence out. This never happened before I started taking meds. I didn't have a stroke. (In fact the reason they joked in the ER how they knew I didn't do drugs because of the words I used and how clear and precise I was in describing my symptoms.) I'm convinced it's my meds ... has anyone else dealt with this?
