Default Shoulder pain/irregular heartbeat

I have been on Zetia for about 6 months now. I had to discontinue Lipitor because of muscle soreness, muscle loss, and loss of strength. 2 months ago, I came up with a fairly bad irregular heartbeat (PVC). Since May, I have had terrible pain in my right shoulder. I thought it was bursitis, but after reading these comments, I wonder. The pain is horrible. I would like to know if anyone else has developed an irregular heartbeat since taking Zetia ... or Lipitor, for that matter. Last year, though I had muscle soreness, etc., I felt the best I had since I was a teenager. Now, I feel the worst. My hair is thinning, too. And my skin seems to be losing elasticity VERY quickly. I know all these are signs of age -- just turned 38 -- but all at once and as quickly as this? I'm suspicious of the Zetia. Anyone relate?

Default irregular heartbeat

Hello my name is Cathy and I saw your entry and I recently started to have PVC's while taking zetia... also muscle aches and pain. I went off of zetia and still had them but not as severe. I thought I would start taking it again and now I am itching and my pvc's are getting worse again.., you might have something here.
