Shouldn't you be asking your doctor? I'm a year out from there but i still strongly reccomend seeing a doctor even after tell you a litttle about angina
Angina is pain or discomfort which most often occurs with activity or stress. Angina is due to poor blood flow through the blood vessels in the heart
Now at your age you should be low risk, unless you are white, male and have a genetic dispostion ( The men in you family die at a young (40's/50's) due to heart problems. As you see above those things are out of your control and are called non-modifiables
you need to foucus on improving your modifiable risk factors. They are high blood pressure, smoking, lack of exercise, obesity, high lipid profile especially LDL, diabetes
the things that don't really need a doctor are improving your diet ( low saturated fat, low salt), exercising ( 150 minutes a week) and cessation of smoking. The rest of your risk factors are best controlled by medication
hope i helped :)0
