I am not on any statins, my issues are old injuries irritated by RA but I feel your pain with GERD as the meds I take for RA seem to cause that.
I've been doing fruit in the morning, mostly cantaloupe, grapes, oranges, strawberries for breakfast - and that gets me through to noon. Then I go with a meat & cheese, no breads lunch with a coke, anything I want for dinner, then nothing but water after that - GERD stopped being a problem after a week or so. I go back to eating whatever, then if gerd rears it's ugly head I go back on that diet for a week or so.
Seems to keep it manageable for me.
I take Simvistatin 20mg and Lisinopral 20mg once daily, among other meds. Initially I had muscle aches (shoulders and back), and I experienced mood swings.
I'm not your doctor and I don't want to offer medical advice. I was a PA-C in cardiothoracic surgery for many years. My advice is talk to your doctor about a different medication and dosage strength. It's a process of trial and error with statins.
Good luck and I hope that you feel better.
