High Cholesterol Symptoms
High cholesterol levels are generally identified from a blood test. Symptoms for high cholesterol are rare. Most of the symptoms seen are in fact from the end-result of high cholesterol for health issues such as coronary disease, stroke, and peripheral vascular disease.
Cholesterol and Coronary Disease
The primary symptom associated with coronary heart disease is called Angina (chest pain). When a person experiences this, they describe a feeling of "pressure", "squeezing", or a general feeling of "someone applying pressure on their chest." The symptoms can spread to the jaw, neck, or arm regions of the body and although the primary symptom is the feeling of pressure in the chest region, some individuals experience that feeling of pressure in other. Other symptoms can include nausea, heart palpitations, shortness of breadth, sweating, lightheadedness or dizziness.
Angina can be directly correlated to coronary heart disease and should be taken seriously. However, there are other stressors such as over-exertion, high-level of emotion, or even after eating a huge meal to be considered. In these circumstances a short period of rest, five minutes or so, will reduce or eliminate the symptoms. Again, if you have any of these symptoms, it is better to be checked out by a physician than to assume everything is fine.
Heart StrokeThere are four primary symptoms pertaining to a stroke although often times this is a sudden event with little or no warning.
