Yes: But heart disease needs to be ruled out because you don't die of pinched nerves in the neck (cervical vertebrae) which could do all 3, or from combinations of arthritis and dyspepsia which could individually do all 3.

Angina: Pre- infarcion unstable angina, accelerated angina, atypical angina, anginal equivalent, stable angina can all be experienced like that.
