According to the drug leaflet Pravastatin may cause damage of the muscle and joint in 2% of patients taking it. I think that this is a side effect which you experience.

It has caused joint pain and stiffness in my hands, arms and legs. It's worse when I first get up in the morning and improves later on. Aspirin helps some.
