Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

His cholesterol level needs aggressive management / Life style changes like reduction of weight diet and exercise are important; drugs may be necessary; no alcohol or tobacco…
Need to check the blood pressure on a few more occasions
Consult an Orthopaedician / get him examined / at times, investigation like MRI spine may be necessary...
Dyslipidaemia / Hypertension / Spondylitis-disc prolapse are a few possibilities…
Regular follow up with your doctor is a must

Take care     
Wishing all well
God bless
Good luck
