Thanks for the query. If your ECG, TMT is normal then we should look beyond cardia, get an x ray of the chest and spine to rule out any nerve involvement. If u can afford it the best modality would be to go for an MRI spine. High cholestrol in itself doesnt cause pain but if it occludes an artery it might cause ischemic pain. Have a healthy living.
