Hi Sanitha,
The drug you are taking for the high levels of LDL cholesterol has the medication which can cause the side effect of myalgia. Myalgia is one of the well documented side effect for the drugs having statins used commonly for treating cholesterol levels.
I would suggest you to consult you doctors immediately regarding this problem of muscular pain with this medication and try to change to some other medication for controlling the LDL level.
Apart from that you can also think to start some medication for your menopausal symptoms in the form of Hormone replacement therapy (HRT). But I would advice you to consult your doctor to know in details all about the HRT therapy before starting this.

Thanks and take care.
