Please let me know how you feel. I have tried all statins and it make me feel like a 100 yr. old woman. Everything you have written seems to be just like my own experience. I am just starting Livalo 6/3/12 and I have coQ10 in my cabinet, but have to be honestly truthfull that I have not taken it enough to see if it works. I am 53 also, my total cholesterol is 324 (yikes). It seems that I will take one pill no matter what statin it is and wake in such pain. I walk up to 50 minutes a day, but had to stop due to aches and pains from statins. Please let me know what your outcome is. I guess I will try the coQ-10 with my next Livalo. Thanks for you info.
