Achy shoulders and hips especially at night. I take simvastatin, B6, and 81 mg of aspirin every night.

In brief: Could be statin

Simvastatin can definitely cause muscle aches.
The way to tell if a medication causing a side effect (or symptom) is to stop taking the medication for awhile (2-3 weeks) to see if the problem goes away.
