In additional to muscle aches and pains, statins can also cause cognitive problems, such as memory loss, irritability
, repetative questioning, trouble finding the correct word or words to form a sentence, and in severe cases, transient global amnesia. There are reports of visual problems also. Your doctor will deny that most of these problems are caused by statins, but if you do your research, you will find that these are very "real" side effects.
