Work w/ur family doc: Work w/your family doc & cardiologist to treat heart disease, angina & high blood pressure (BP). 1st make appropriate lifestyle modifications: quit smoking, start exercising regularly, then commit to eating healthy. Enough rest plus meditation can help. Statins are now 1st line drug for anyone w/heart disease. Nitrates are useful for those suffering from angina (chest pain). Many drugs to treat BP

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.
