Possibly: If you are experiencing chest discomfort/pain/pressure, you should see your physician right away! depending on your risk factors, you may or may not need angioplasty as angina can sometimes treated medically. Angina is a serious condition, and medical evaluation should not be delayed.

Age 33, probably Not: Chest pain: just that; many possible bases; though ds typically starts in childhood, angina uncommon at age 33. Medical industry commonly sells via fear, defensive med & expensive treatments pay more, even if bad for pt. Buyer beware always applies. If angina, better option: optimize NMR particle test (ldl ≤700 nmol/l, large HDL ≥9 µmol/l), hba1c ≤6.0, 5.0 optimal, sbp ≤120, ↓body fat, ↑activity.
