Pain...: Pain in teenagers usually associated with acute trauma, chronic overuse injury, infection, autoimmune disease or even malignancy. Would recommend second opinion with referral.

Statins?: Do you mean your pcp said stop "statins"? Statins are meds for cholesterol which can certainly cause body pains and when stopped it can take several weeks for symptoms to completely resolve. However, statins are not commonly used in pediatric medicine.
