Thanks for your query and an elucidate history.
Noted that you are 36 years old without any problems except taking statin for high cholesterol.
Got your Echo and stress test 1 week ago and found that it was perfectly normal.
You are feeling a bit breathless and left wrist was paining for 20 minutes.
Since the anxiety would be more, it is better to an EKG/ECG just to make sure that the heart is normal.
It is otherwise OK, and does not looks to be a serious problem.
I would also advise to get Thyroid function tests, fresh blood tests such as lipid profile, proper diet and more important the physical exercises under the guidance of a trainer or a Doctor and most of of the problems may just finish. This will help to keep your cholesterol in normal limits
