Read article at Bournemouthecho.co.uk use search for all words i.e."Statins may have given me MND" I too have had problems with Simvastatin - aching limbs and muscles. While I was in hospital for an angiogram, following heart problem,after angiogram I had to wait approx one hour for bleeeding to stop and nurse said that if I could walk to door of ward ok then I could go home. I got off bed and my legs just folded under me. Two nurses rushed to help and managed to sit me on a chair but it was some 25 minutes before I was able to walk. By following this forum I decided that the problem was caused by Sivastatin so I immediately stopped taking them and returned them to pharmacy. My muscles have been ok since.
