Hi.. High cholesterol can cause heart diseases.. You may need to check your heart status.. It would be better to get a complete healthcheck up done at the same time.. The choice however is to you... All the best...:)

Cholesterol levels, especially that of 'bad' cholesterol (LDL) are high. This needs treatment with statins.
Whether the cholesterol levels can be blamed for your symptoms is difficult to say.
you need to undergo a treadmill test to see if there is a possibility that coronary artery blockages have occurred. Another possibility is that your exercise capacity has become less because of sedentary lifestyle and lack of exercise.
You need to be evaluated in detail
