If external application of ointment gives you relief then it may be a case of chest muscle strain. So there is no health risk. But you should be working towards reducing your cholesterol. At this age, high cholesterol can be harmful to the heart. Go for a ecg and a echo. Consult a physician to rule out any cardiac ailments.

If she has blockages and with all these other illnesses, the first thing should be to get the blockages open either by stents or by surgery and continue with medications post that along with strict diabetes control. If you donot choose to get blockages addressed then she can continue on medical therapy but there is no reassurance that she will not have a heart attack.
