Possible but unlikely: most angina occurs on the basis of hardening of the arteries which would be unlikely with a normal stress test and no cardiac risk factors
There are however some types of angina is that do not occur from "hardening of the arteries such as spasm of the arteries this can be diagnosed by EKG by giving certain drugs or by heart catheterization
