Advice & Tips: I was worried about this possibly causing ALS. My dr said the risk of heart disease was much greater off than the risk of ALS was on Simvastatin. My new dr and I agree that, with my compromised immune system and fact that my cholesterol wasn't real high before going on it, I should stop taking it and watch my diet/exercise and we'll check my cholesterol levels again at a later date. She also said that it could be causing some of my pain.
