Hello everyone, this is my first post here. After getting an urgent letter to go to my docotor as soon as possible, I was told that my cholesterol level is at 8.2 and was prescribed some pills (didn't pick them up yet).
I am 28 years old 174cm tall and I weigh aroun 77kgs - so yes, I am overweight.
Unfortunatley I do not have other numbers (good cholesterol/bad cholesterol), but since doctor didn't look too pleased with my blood test results, I assume it's not that good.
I know about diets, but since people here have experience with a lifestyle that high cholesterol brings, I would appreciate if someone could give me some info on:
Does HC (high cholesterol) cause dizziness?
Could HC be a cause of any pain on the right side of my chest - often in mix with a dull pain in upper jaw (right side)? - I get that sometimes..
How did HC change your life?
I've heard HC pills have horrible side effects - any comment?
I hope the questions are not too detailed ?
Are there bad HC days? Where you actually feel bad? How is that?
Thank you all in advance and I'm very happy that this support group exists.
Also please note, that my English is not my first language.
