Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (18 hours ago):

  • I recently began taking simvastatin for high cholesterol (family history) and after one month, I began experiencing pain in my right shoulder blade, fairly moderate but after a week, pretty severe. In the past 3 days, I noticed itching and pain under my right armpit, then red bumps which have now progressed to multiple red bumps and blisters with severe pain, skin sensitivity and itching/burning. I'm convinced I have shingles but am waiting until tomorrow to call a doctor since this all began on a weekend.
