Hi there. Short background. I recently went to the Urgent Care clinic because I had not been feeling well. Light headed, slight pain in upper left chest as well in my shoulder, although I do suffer from muscle tightness in that area almost always. About two weeks prior I had a tingling in left arm and was sweating above my lip. Long story short, they did an EKG which came back fine and then blood work. These are my levels:

Total 326
Triglycerides 166
HDL 53
VLDL 33
LDL 240

I'll be the first to admit that my diet isn't the greatest. Not a lot of fast food but not a lot of fruits and veggies either. Probably too many processed foods and my only exercise is walking my dog every day. I really would like to try and lower this with a lifestyle change but I'm concerned since I was having the above symptoms. I feel much better but still feel off but that could be due to stress worrying about everything.

I just signed up to get a heart screening which includes an echocardiogram, stroke/carotid artery screening, abdominal aortic screening, peripheral arterial disease screening and then all the blood work that I just had done, all for the price of $250.00. Thanks for any help.
