What symptoms do you: Have? It is highly unlikely for a 19 y/o to be having angina (unless you have a strong FHx or using drugs like cocaine). Typical symptoms can be common with symptoms in other conditions. It may present with chest pain, or upper abd pain, or neck pain radiating to the L side. Patient may have difficulty breathing. Worse with exertion. Again very unlikely in a patient your age.

Doubt Sngina: I am going to assume your work up for chest pain was negative. I really doubt that you have Angina, otherwise your doctors eould have put you on some sort of medication, like beta blockers. It sounds like you may have Reflux or chest wall pain. Non cardiac chest pain. Stop smoking is my best advise to you.

Vasospasm: It is a type of angina casused by spasm in the coronary arteries. Not exertional mediated. It occurs more at night. We treat this with Nitroglycerin or calcium blockers some time both. Unfortunately there is no real testing to prove that. I have detected this in a a couple of patients with holter monitoring while during symptoms at night they had ECG changes. Please let me know if any questions.

If marijuana were to trigger me to experience angina symptoms, would it also be triggered by other things like physical exertion or acute stress?

If marijuana were to trigger me to experience angina symptoms, would it also be triggered by other things like physical exertion or acute stress?

See doctor: Sounds like you're worried about chest pain or or other cardiac symptoms from marijuana, physical exertion and stress. You should be seen without delay by your pcp for an evaluation to determine how your heart is reacting to these factors. Meantime, avoid smoking mj or overdoing any physical activity. Tell your doc about any major stress going on. I hope this helps. Best wishes.
