I frequently get a pricking type of pain on the left side, around the upper chest area, particularly behind the arm pit area. And sometimes behind the shoulder blades and in the chest area adjacent to the nipple. I have done TMT, ECG, and echocardiogram tests, and they are all normal. Only my blood cholesterol is borderline high, LDL is 156, triglycerides is 140, HDL is 40, and total cholesterol is 230. I have attached all my reports. What might be the underlying causes?
