In brief: Possibly
If you are experiencing chest discomfort/pain/pressure, you should see your physician right away! depending on your risk factors, you may or may not need angioplasty as angina can sometimes treated medically.
Angina is a serious condition, and medical evaluation should not be delayed.

In brief: Age 33, probably Not
Chest pain: just that; many possible bases; though ds typically starts in childhood, angina uncommon at age 33.
Medical industry commonly sells via fear, defensive med & expensive treatments pay more, even if bad for pt. Buyer beware always applies. If angina, better option: optimize NMR particle test (ldl ?700 nmol/l, large HDL ?9 µmol/l), hba1c ?6.0, 5.0 optimal, sbp ?120, ?body fat, ?activity.
