Simvastatin Headache Causes and Reviews


Almost everyone has had a Headache. Headache is the most common form of pain. It's a major reason people miss days at work or school or visit the doctor.

The most common type of Headache is a tension Headache. Tension Headaches are due to tight muscles in your shoulders, neck, scalp and jaw. They are often related to stress, depression or anxiety. You are more likely to get tension Headaches if you work too much, don't get enough sleep, miss meals, or use alcohol.

Other common types of Headaches include migraines, cluster Headaches, and sinus Headaches. Most people can feel much better by making lifestyle changes, learning ways to relax and taking pain relievers.

Not all Headaches require a doctor's attention. But sometimes Headaches warn of a more serious disorder. Let your health care provider know if you have sudden, severe Headaches. Get medical help right away if you have a Headache after a blow to your head, or if you have a Headache along with a stiff neck, fever, confusion, loss of consciousness, or pain in the eye or ear.

Has anyone taking this medication after a year,expierenced Headaches?

Wed, 24 Nov 2010

I have been in Zorcor for a good 6 years with no problems (40mg). I did not have any problems until recently. I now have a number of strange complaintes. I thought it may just be part of getting older. I am having joint and muscle pain and extreme Headaches that absolutely debiliatate
me. I have a rash and my throat swells at times.Until reading some of your comments, I never suspected it could be from the same med. The swellinng in the throat was the final straw. I am officially off the med. as of today, with an immediate doctor visit in the works.

Sat, 07 May 2011
