Thanks for writing to HCM

Muscle pain is one of the side effects of atorvastatin.You need to talk to your doctor. Enzyme level CPK should be assessed.
Knee pain may be due to degenerative changes.You need x-ray of knee bone in AP/Lateral view.
You also need to control your uric acid level.

Take Care
