High cholesterol: Pain in feet, hands or jaw could indicate signs of the condition

Jaw pain

Aches and pains in the jaw and neck are fairly common symptoms of angina discomfort arising from poor blood flow to part of the heart muscle, said Harvard Health.

The health site added: “Although angina is commonly felt as pain, pressure, or heaviness in the chest, it can appear in many guises.

“The main nerve that carries pain signals from the heart, the vagus nerve, also communicates with the neck, jaw, and head, as well as the left arm.

“That means alarm signals from the heart can be felt elsewhere.”
