In brief: Both, if....

If you have coronary disease (blockages in your coronary arteries), stress can cause your heart to pump harder and faster, outstripping its limited blood supply, resulting in angina.
If prolonged, permanent damage can result (heart attack). If your heart is normal, stress cannot cause angina or a heart attack.
