In brief: A warning
A partial obstruction likely will not cause symptoms of chest pain.
However, it certainly may progress and cause problems later on. This means that you have coronary artery disesae albeit mild. Aggressive risk factor modification is critical. Treat blood pressure, diabetes, stop smoking, exercise and lower cholesterol as low as possible.
