I have been taking Zocor to lower my Cholesterol for about 5 years. I think it adds pain . I stopped it for 5 days and my pain seem less . I started it again I got worse. I am stopping it again to see if the pain gets less again. My cholesterol count 5 years ago was 350 after the med it came down to 245 .They haven't checked it for a long time so I don't know what it is now. Do any of you think cholesterol can cause pain ? I know it can clog veins but can it cause pain? Or can the meds we take to keep the veins clean cause us pain?
