Hi, Sushil,
Thanks for query.
It seems that you might be having myalgia, i.e. muscular pain.
But as it is in the chest go for ECG to rule out any cardiac problem.
Your S. cholesterol is high but with regular exercise and strict fat control diet will be normal.
Repeat cholesterol after 6 months and still it remains high you can go for medicine for cholesterol.
Ok and bye.
