Hello Jaz, thank you for asking.
What cholesterol level do you mean, is it total cholesterol, or LDL? Cholesterol is part of a fat molecule (lipid). So it is with trigeliserida, a part of fat. Cholesterol is needed by the body to build cell walls, as a source of energy, as a raw material for many important molecules in the body, and as a raw material for steroid hormones. However, if cholesterol consumption exceeds the need for use by cells, cholesterol will accumulate in certain blood vessels and organs. Cholesterol has many types, namely VLDL, IDL, HDL, and LDL. On examination will be found an increase in one or more types of cholesterol. Total cholesterol levels above 150 or 200 mg / dL are generally said to be hypercholesterol (depending on the normal values used by a lab). Normal LDL levels are generally below 150 or 130 mg / dL. But in people with high risk (for example the elderly, people with a history of stroke, diabetes mellitus, and hypertension) it is recommended that LDL levels be below 100 or 70 mg / dL.
Regarding your blood pressure, you must mention the systolic and diatolic values. If the value you mentioned is a systolic value, it means your blood pressure is at the pre-hypertensive value. But if the value you mentioned is a diastolic value, it means you are in a level 2 hypertension condition.
In general, there is no scientific evidence of a relationship between pain or tension in the back of the head or nape with increased cholesterol levels and blood pressure. Neck pain can be caused by various things, for example:
Tension type headache. Migraine. Myalgia (muscle aches) Spasmophilia Disorders of the cervical spine. To find out possible causes, consult a doctor. The doctor may require additional examinations such as electromyography. Treatment can be in the form of analgesics, muscle relaxants, and anti-inflammatory. Please do not take any hard drugs without doctor's advice. You can try over-the-counter analgesics in green (make sure there are no allergic reactions), warm compresses to the area of pain, and do regular stretches to the nape of the neck, shoulders and back.
Hopefully this answer can help. Regards.
