    Do I need to worry about Atherosclerosis?

    Just what the title entails, should I be worried about clogged arteries? I'm 18, I'm definitely not fit (I sit at my computer all day) but I'm not fat either, I'm a bit underweight if anything. 5'7" 115lbs if you want specifics. Anyways, his concern comes from some strange tightness in my chest I've had on and off over the past day and a half. It might be anxiety driven, but it's only now just happened so I'm on the fence about that. My diet consists mostly of dairy and meat, with some chips and snacks on the side. When I say it consists of dairy I mean like 1/2-3/4 of a gallon of whole milk a day, which is the main source of my worry. From what I've read whole milk can really contribute to clogging up your arteries and such. All that on top of nicotine use on the daily is why I'm worried enough to hop on here and ask. I plan to go to the doc eventually about it, but I don't have any insurance at the time so it'd get pretty costly.

    (Besides the tightness in my chest, there's really no other symptoms that'd make me think heart attack or any of the sorts so dont worry about any urgency like that)
