Our expert says:
Your cholesterol should be <5 ideally. Anti-cholesterol medication can cause joint and muscle pain ( myopathy) and increased liver enzyme levels but not in all patients. One has to weigh up which would be more negative to you, the side effects or the dangers from a high cholesterol. If you are not eating a low fat diet you could try changing your diet but this may not be enough. Cholesterol if often hereditary and you may be one of the people that just needs to take medication for it.
