Hello,

You have high cholesterol and your dad's family has a history of having high cholesterol. Presently you are experiencing recurrent numbness in the forehead. Numbness in the forehead is commonly indicative of anxiety, paresthesia, stressful lifestyle, blocked circulation, shingles, peripheral neuropathy, developing nerve weakness, bell's palsy, peripheral neuropathy, etc. You are suggested to stay well hydrated, give rest to your eyes and brain, just relax. Disconnect yourself from electronic devices, laptop, PC, tablets, cell phone, etc at least 3-4 hours before going to bed.

Hear to some good music, take healthy food & take quality sleep (minimum 8 hours) for a couple of days. Avoid getting exhausted. Your symptoms should reduce. If not, you should get a a complete medical check up done. Get all required tests and investigations done. Since you are very young to have high cholesterol level, you are suggested to exercise regularly, do walking both in the morning and evening. Take control of your diet, avoid trans fat, full fat dairy products, red meat, alcohol, white flour, etc. Stay away from addictions if any.

Prefer to take boiled food over spicy, oily food. Take lean meat, small fish, nuts dry fruits, veggies and fruits / berries, well cooked whole cereals, etc to stay healthy and fit. Take a repeat lipid function test 45-50 days, after taking healthy food and doing exercise. Your test reports should show better results. Maintain healthy lifestyle, however to rule out any developing CAD, you can get clinically examined by a Cardiologist.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Nupur K., General & Family Physician
