to young to have angina?

i have recently posted another question in conection with my high blood pressure which is normally around 165 over 108 but can at times be as high as 179 over 125 and as low as 145 over 100. i have also been getting chest pains in my chest in the center near the breast bone. its not always a pain sometimes a tightening in the chest. the pain is normally quite mild but can at times be very painful the pain itself is like a crushing pain like someone has there foot on my chest and is pressing down on it. i am only 24 and am 6ft tall 225 pounds. they are thinking its angina i do have family history of heart trouble my dad has heart disease and had his first of many heart attacks and issues in his twentys and had a valve put in before he was thirty. i guess my question is just could they be right and this is angina or am i simply to young.

Re: to young to have angina?

I used to get chest pain as a kid quite frequently and still get it sometimes. I don't think there's a requisite age.
With your family history and blood pressure you do need to see a doctor about this.

Re: to young to have angina?

right saw i cardio specialist last yesterday the nurse agreed my pain sounded like angina. i was asked to take a chest stress test which i did and seemed to do well lasting over 10 minutes they said bp went up as did heart rate which is good and normal she said ecg looked ok but did say there were some missed and skipped beats and a slightly faster heart beat but said this is normal? she did say due to pain and family history they will do some more tests in next few weeks.

Re: to young to have angina?

Hello Ben, read my post (After engine rebuild, Jay Ar). I have 40 plus years on you and smoked for 45 years before I got a brain. However I can relate to your query and would urge you to get a 2nd or 3rd opinion. There are millions of Bypasses performed around the world each year, and even though you feel second hand for a couple of days afterwards it is an amazing life giving exercise.
