Hello There

After going through your medical details I understand your concern and I would like to tell you that generally high cholesterol can cause heart disease which can cause angina ( jaw numbness)

It’s recommended for you to get basic cardiac evaluation which includes an Ecg, Echocardiography and consult a physician with reports.

Hopefully this information will guide you properly

Kind Regards
Dr Bhanu Partap
