Welcome to Health Care Magic,
High cholestrol may lead to coronary disease causing Angina pectoris which is a severe stabbing and gripping pain in the chest which spreads to neck jaw and arms.
Stroke is the other consequense of increased cholestrol.Other than this Peripheral vascular disease that is blockage of arteries may result stopping the blood supply.

Hello james;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
The main problem with having high cholesterol is that it makes your body more prone to get atherosclerosis that is clogging of arteries which gives rise to physical dangers like getting a heart attack;paralysis of a part or half of your body as a result of reduced blood supply to the vital organs like heart;brain.So if you have high cholesterol you need to get treated as soon as possible.
