It is unlikely that. The cardiologist will be able to explain your multiple symptoms but he/she will be able to exclude a cardiac etiology for your chest pain. Then you will need to be evaluated for your other complaints. A neurologist evaluation would seem reasonable to exclude multiple sclerosis as a possibility.

What could cause hand to bleed for no reason my dad recently started noticing drops of blood just appearing on top of his hand without him hitting it or hurting it in any way. He has history of heart disease high blood pressure stroke and kidney disease.

Oner. Oner cause of seemingly spontaneous bleeding may be a pyogenic granuloma a small soft reddish soft tissue bump that can form a t a site of cut. The tissue bleeds very easily. A varicosity or loop of dilared vein if cut may seem to bleed excessively. Dry skin that cracks at the joint sufces or pal can bleed. Finally minor trauma can lead to an abrasion of cut unbeknownst to the injured. Agree that blood needs to be check for clotting, bleeding time etc and certain medications, aspirin, nsaids, and of course blood thinners such as Coumadin (warfarin) if being taken need to be checked. As well as a variety of blood disorders.

I have a strong family history of premature heart disease, BP is 135/90, LDL 130, non smoker. Should I be treated for cholesterol lowering pill?

Not yet. There is not enough evidence to recommend that people like you take a statin for primary prevention at this time. Follow a heart healthy diet which is low in saturated fats and avoid concentrated sweets and reduce starches like pasta, potatoes, bread and rice. Keep your weight ideal and your blood pressure around 120/80. Regular exercise is advisable. Periodic treadmill stress test is advisable.
Depends on Particles. Cardiovascular (CVD) risk is related to the number of LDL particles (LDL-P). Because cholesterol in LDL particles is highly variable, cholesterol levels often disagree with particle number. When cholesterol and particle number disagree CVD risk tracks with LDL-P, not LDL-C. If an FDA cleared LDL-P test (i.e., NMR LipoProfile test) is elevated, further evaluation and treatment should be considered.
