Chest Pains From High LDL?

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created September 22, 2010 at 9:17 PM

Hi All,

I am 24 and have VERY HIGH HDL, VERY HIGH LDL (all large particle size),and super low Trigs (27). Seems to be that this "abnormal" cholesterol is more and more common among the paleo crowd. I actually got my cholesterol checked along with other blood markers (all normal) and a stress echo (normal) becasue I have been experiencing severe chest pain for over two weeks now. I havent done any workouts in 3 weeks so I can rule that out as a cause. The pain is non stop right in the middle of my chest. Any feedback? This is naturally giving me incredible anxiety.

Thanks!

She has already been to the doctor. A person doesn't get a stress echo without seeing a doctor first. Obviously the doctor wasn't able to give her an answer, so she is asking here. Seems appropriate, no?

GO TO A DOCTOR!

From PaleoHacks FAQ:

PaleoHacks is not the place for treating symptoms that are possibly acutely life threatening. For example:

Unexplained abdominal pain. (Like, it's not something normal for you like heartburn or menstrual cramps.)

Abdominal pain that gets worse over the course of several hours.

Fainting.

Unexplained sudden severe headache.

Headache that does not go away after taking pain medication, or gets worse after several hours.

Shortness of breath.

Chest pain.

Difficulty breathing.

Changes in vision.

Uncontrollable bleeding.
