Many possibilities: Study: http://www.dizziness-and-balance.com/disorders/outline.htm for some of the possibilities. 156 mg/dL is a cholesterol value (an estimated, not measured value), not true Low Density Lipoprotein concentration (the correct issue) yet quite high & unlikely healthy. Thus stroke could be a likely mechanism for the vertigo symptoms. Suggest intensely study my answers for more insight. Good luck.
