Symptoms of High Cholesterol

High cholesterol might be quiet but its presence can lay the groundwork for a slew of complications, ranging from heart disease to stroke. While the fatty culprit rarely shows symptoms, warning signs can appear once cholesterol starts clogging your arteries. One tell-tale sign of this process can present as four unpleasant sensations.

Leaving high cholesterol to its own devices can promote plaque build-up in your arteries.

Plaques are a mix of fatty substances, cellular waste products, calcium as well as fibrin.

This lack of blood flow in your legs can sometimes spur on a "common" condition known as peripheral artery disease (PAD), according to the Cleveland Clinic.

The "first noticeable symptom" triggered by PAD is leg discomfort, pain or cramping.

However, this condition can also trigger four warning sensations in your leg muscles.

According to the health portal, your leg muscles may start feeling:

  • Numb
  • Weak
  • Heavy
  • Tired.

A simple way to prevent

We'd pay attention to few things if we want to live longer and painless:

  • Lifestyle
  • Nutrition

Under Lifestyle​ we'd consider giving up our bad habits like smoking, disrupting the sleep cycle and sabotaging our mind in multiple ways including toxic social media and movies

Under Nutrition we'd consider to eat only when hungry and giving up the temptation to eat junk food
