Completely?: I tend not to say always or never in medicine, but you can make enormous progress in recovering from heart disease. If you have high blood pressure, get it under contol. Manage any other risk factors like overweight, diabetes, high cholesterol and a sedentary lifestyle. You will be amazed at the progress you can make. Besides, you're way too young to throw in the towel! good luck. Lgromkomd.

If you are 22: angina is highly unlikely. However, if you are saying that you are always breathless and having chest pain, you need to be seen. Good luck.
