Patient :Hi, I'm a 17 year old 83lb girl. I'm around 5'4 and a few months ago, I was told that I have high cholesterol. The doctor said that it wasn't really high. But I've been having waist pains and my heart hurts today. I was also out of breath after taking some steps up a set of stairs. I felt like I couldn't breath. Could this be because of my cholesterol?
