A few months ago I was getting shortness of breath whenever I ate. I went to the ER who did tests and told me to take pepcids, which sure enough worked.

Well with those tests they checked my blood pressure, blood, o2 and ekg, and it was all perfect (even though I am overweight). Well the past couple days after I exercise and sit down, I get a sensitive tooth feeling in my front teeth. I looked it up online and it says this could be the only symptom of angina.

The tooth usually aches for ten minutes before going away, and it usually comes about ten minutes after I sit down.

I was running in the cold and breathing in the cold air, but that has never lead to tooth aches before. So I'm worried. I'm only 25 and worried about it.

That is interesting. Usually angina comes on with exertion, then is alleviated with rest (stable form)--seems like your HR would be back to normal by 10 mins after stopping. It is wise to investigate any unusual symptoms-- you could visit your pcp and get an ekg, blood (cholesterol screen, chemistry, cbc, etc) and then discuss whether further testing like a stress test or echo is necessary. I've recently had all of these tests and they are not painful--just time consuming.
