high cholesterol is not good & perhaps for that u are on simvastatin(* what doses?) --see these drugs are metabolized by liver & usually are well tolerated but at times they can cause mild hepatitis & since you are symptomatic also YOU need to look your dr once more for physical examination if drug itself is a cause ...the dr might need to adjust the doses or change the drug
