Dark or bloody urine or pain in your upper abdomen or chest can be signs of serious kidney and liver disorders. If you have any of these symptoms while taking a statin, call your doctor right away.

Muscle Pain from Statins. If one ever experiences chest pain as a side effect from a statin, this drug would be affecting the muscles in the chest, rather than the heart itself. Thus, any chest pain from a statin (which would be very rare) is not angina.

Very rarely, statins can cause life-threatening muscle damage called rhabdomyolysis (rab-doe-my-OL-ih-sis). Rhabdomyolysis can cause severe muscle pain, liver damage, kidney failure and death. The risk of very serious side effects is extremely low, and calculated in a few cases per million people taking statins.

I've been taking Pravastatin for the past months, and although I admit of having a problem in the chest (I was told I have fused ribs in the left chest), so I do feel some kind of numbness there. Now that I take this drug, I'm feeling a lot more tightness/pressure in the middle of the chest, nowhere near my fused ribs.

Statin medications and low cholesterol levels can both contribute to low CoQ10 levels. Calcium leakage. Calcium helps muscles contract, but when calcium leaks from muscle cells unintentionally, it can damage your muscle cells which causes muscle pain. New research shows that statins may increase this unintentional leakage.

In general, muscle symptoms directly due to a statin drug cause diffuse muscle aches. So, if your pain is localized to only one area of your body, then it’s probably related to something else. Most often when statins are responsible for the muscle pain, one of three things happen.

Muscle Pain and Weakness. The most common side effect is muscle pain and weakness, a condition called rhabdomyolysis, most likely due to the depletion of Co-Q 10, a nutrient that supports muscle function. Dr. Beatrice Golomb of San Diego, California is currently conducting a series of studies on statin side effects.
