Good morning Nayla, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. What you experience is likely several conditions that occur simultaneously rather than a disease that occurs continuously. Beginning with tingling sensation, burning sensation and needling, these symptoms are typical symptoms describing neurological disorders. This is because nerves are the parts of the body that play a role in delivering these sensations, such as heat, cold, touch, pain, vibration, and so on. When there is a feeling of pins and needles, numbness, heat and tingling without a clear stimulus, chances are that your nerves are affected for some reason.
The same goes for insomnia and restlessness as well as daydreaming, which can occur due to psychological disturbances, or at least as a result of the physical discomfort you feel while sleeping. Then then cholesterol. Indeed, with the diet and life of people today, cholesterol disease, which used to attack only adults, can now also attack younger people. But again, depending on the results of the physical examination, whether you are a person who is overweight or not, what your family history of illness is, and so on, this cholesterol can or may not affect your current condition.
Our advice, you should check with a neurologist and an internal medicine doctor. It's up to you first which one, to a neurologist, the focus is to check complaints of tingling, heat, prickling and numbness, and determine whether it is caused by cholesterol you have or something else. In an internal medicine doctor, the focus is to check your cholesterol level and carry out further tests regarding your heart complaints through an EKG, treadmill test or echocardiogram and whether this is really related to your other complaints.
Meanwhile, improve your lifestyle by staying away from cigarette smoke, stress, fast food, instant, junk food and oily / fatty foods, getting more exercise regularly, getting adequate rest, increasing consumption of water, vegetables and fruit, and avoiding bottled drinks. We wish you and your family good health.
That's all, hope it helps.
