Jaw pain after walking. Is this related to heart problem? Have high cholesterol

After few minutes of walk my jaw starts paining lightly and continues for approx. 15-20 minutes and then relieves immediately but I continue walking at around 6.5 KM/hour. I walk 30 minutes 2-3 days a week. Its not disturbing but it pains. Is this symptom related to heart problem. I am a cholestrol patient for past 7 years. Can I get rid of this pain by continuous walking of atleast 45-60 minutes a day?

Thanks for writing in.
I am a qualified and certified cardiologist. I read your mail with diligence. An uncommon presentation of walk through angina(due to mismatch of blood supply to heart in proportionate to its demand) can manifest with only jaw pain. If you do not have dental symptoms I will suggest to you to consult your doctor so that this condition can be excluded. Good Luck.
Best Wishes
