Angina is low on the list of many things that cause these symptoms at that age. If they are interfering with her activities, it is worth a visit to her doc to sort out the many possibilities. A full review of the history of symptom emergence, intensity, duration and quality of pain, factors that increase or reduce intensity, etc. are all part of the initial evaluation. Some testing is also needed.
