Aspavor is brand name for atorvastatin. It belongs to same group of medicine (statin) as simvastatin.

These are known to cause muscle pain or muscle fiber damage.

So your pain in upper chest may be due to Aspavor.

You may need to stop it.

Your doctor may like to start another group of medicines for lowering cholesterol / lipids.
