Hi...... I started Simvastain 10mg 5months ago with no side effects, ( Cholesterol reduced from 9.1 to 6.4.... I have familial hypercholesterolemia ) dose increased to 20mg 4 weeks ago, felt fine with no side effects, but have recently come down with a virus that has now persisted for 2 weeks and wondering if it is the statins that are giving me symptoms/side effects. I have had a persistent 'heavy' thick head, neck tenderness with occasional pains shooting up side of neck into head also joint aches that i have associated with the mild temperature ( had this all for 2 weeks now!!!).... i am now wanting to find a cause for my symptoms and wondered if anyone out there had similar experiences..... Many thanks
