Cardiologist 's  Response
Hi Rajesh,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

Your pulse is in lower ranges. Probably normal.
You could go for 24-hour monitoring (Holter) for further analysis.
Your cardiologist will guide.

Numbness is not likely from the heart.
You need to check electrolytes, cervical spine and so on.

The cholesterol is high.
Check LDL (non-HDL)
You will need advice on diet and exercise.
If not controlled in 2 months, you need drugs – probably a statin
Your Internist can guide properly

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
