In brief: Get Checked Out

You need a cardiac evaluation, if only for your piece of mind.
That should provide useful information to deal with your exercise planning.

In brief: Stress test

To ease your mind ask your doctor to refer you for a simple treadmill stress test where you can exercise under a controlled environment and determine if you have any cardiac risk.
