Hay doc, I want to ask. I have high cholesterol. Every night the head to the body like a shake. Especially in the head area. Is that because of the effects of cholesterol? Then what is the treatment like? Please help thanks
Hello John, Thank you for the question.
High cholesterol levels in the blood generally do not cause any symptoms. New symptoms arise if these cholesterol levels have accumulated in the blood vessels in the form of plaque. Plaque that builds up in blood vessels can interfere with blood flow to certain organs. In this condition, new symptoms are felt by sufferers. If plaque forms in the heart's blood vessels, it causes symptoms of coronary heart disease, if it forms in the blood vessels of the brain it causes symptoms of a stroke, if it forms in the blood vessels of the kidneys, it causes symptoms of kidney disorders.
The symptoms that you feel are shaken-up sensations can be categorized as dizzy symptoms. These symptoms can be caused by:
low blood pressure
low blood sugar levels
benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV), due to disorders of the ear
You are advised to take the form of treatment:
get enough rest for 7-9 hours every day
regular food consumption
consumption of balanced nutritious food every day
multiply water consumption at least 2 liters per day
slowly change the position of the armpits for example from lying down to sitting and from sitting to standing and vice versa
If the symptoms have lasted more than 3 days and disrupt your daily activities, please consult with your nearest GP so that you can be examined immediately so that appropriate treatment can be given. However, if the symptoms are accompanied by weakness in some parts of the body, asymmetrical face, or talk pelo, you are encouraged to immediately visit the emergency room of the nearest hospital so you can immediately get the appropriate treatment.
I hope this helps.
