High cholesterol is a problem that affects millions of people all over the world today. Coronary artery disease, atherosclerosis, coronary failure, cardiac arrest, stroke, and death are all possible outcomes of the condition. However, when your blood cholesterol is high, there are some parts of the body that you will experience pain, which I will briefly discuss in this post according to Healthline.
A feeling of discomfort and pain or soreness in the chest. WebMD reports that high cholesterol can lead to heart disease and other circulatory issues. It is called atherosclerosis in the medical field. The chest is a common symptomatic site due to its proximity to the heart and the circulatory system. The medical word for this form of chest pain is angina pectoris. Another possible cause of this angina pectoris is coronary artery disease.
An evaluation of your cholesterol levels is warranted if you are overweight and have been suffering from jaw and neck pain for an extended period of time without obvious explanation.
Jaw and neck pain could be an indication of poor blood circulation to the brain. These are the beginnings of the common carotid artery, which supplies the brain with oxygenated blood.
Experiencing leg and foot pain, particularly when walking or engaging in other forms of physical activity. Peripheral artery disease stems from a buildup of cholesterol in the blood vessels that supply the legs (PAD). Leg symptoms such as tingling and pain indicate that this condition is present.
High cholesterol levels necessitate intervention. Every three months is the bare minimum recommended time between inspections. Maintenance of a healthy weight also requires regular physical activity. Eat fewer trans fats and more veggies, fruits, and polyunsaturated fats.
