High cholesterol symptoms can be totally undetectable.
In fact most people never feel any high cholesterol symptoms and they only find out they have high cholesterol levels only after a check up by a doctor that includes taking a blood sample.
You may not have any symptoms until it is too late. That’s why it is important to check your cholesterol level before you have a heart attack or stroke.
If any of the following applies to you, you may be living a high cholesterol lifestyle:
You eat prepared or fast food.
You eat regular cheese and buy whole milk.
You indulge in fatty meats – ribs,bacon or porkchops.
You get little exercise.
You are overweight – if so, your body stores more fat and cholesterol.
You do not check your cholesterol level.
You need to have a check up by a doctor that includes taking a blood sample to measure your cholesterol levels.
While there are no high cholesterol symptoms, you can actually see them from the end-result of high cholesterol on health. These end results are heart attack and stroke.
Let us break each of these two high cholesterol symptoms and look at them in depth.
When you have high cholesterol even though there are no symptoms, the cholesterol itself builds up and clogs the arteries. The outcome is that the blood flow is slowed or stopped completely.
Some high cholesterol symptoms, which may show a sign of heart disease, are:
Chest pain – When a person experiences this, they describe a feeling of “pressure”, “squeezing”, or a general feeling of “someone sitting on their chest.”
In addition to the reported pressure, other symptoms can include nausea, shortness of breath, sweating, lightheadedness or dizziness, and heart palpitations.
Numbness and/or tingling in the lower extremities.
A cold sensation in the lower extremities.
Open sores or ulcers on the lower extremities that do not heal normally.
There are four high cholesterol symptoms pertaining to a stroke although often times this is a sudden event with little or no warning.
The sudden onset of numbness or weakness of face, arm, or leg, especially on one side of the body.
Confusion, difficulty speaking or understanding.
Sudden trouble with vision in one or both eyes.
Dizziness, loss of balance, lack of coordination
Other symptoms can include, nausea, vomiting, fever, fainting, convulsions, and even coma.
I just want to share the story of my uncle who had a stroke in 1991 (he passed away in 2001). He was a healthy person in his fifties and after having a routine checkup, the doctor told him that he had high blood pressure and he had to take care of his diet and take some medicines.
