1 doctor agrees

In brief: Many

Many toxins can cause spasm of the coronary arteries resulting in angina, so it is possible.
This is not a classic symptom of metal poisoning though.

In brief: No

Angina is caused by inadequate circulation in the heart.
Heavy metal poisoning can cause many symptoms but angina isn't one of them.
