As your blood pressure is high .. so you should go for some investigations.
your pulse rates also high,
so consult your physician for ECG,lipid profile etc and get diagnosis .

Hi welcome to healthcareMagic

The ECG, TMT and the BP and clinical parameters are normal, hence there is no Cardiac disease... since there is swelling in chest, the pain is since 2 yrs , the pain may be neuralgic pain (pain from nerves)... your lipid profile shows little bit increase in LDL,VLDL, but if you continue to follow the fat restricted diet, exercise, and atoravastatin , then sure the lipid levels will decrease... do not worry much, ther is no major disorder. continue the medications
