I'm 22 with Graves' disease (hyperthyroidism, under control), Crohn's and syringomyelia (spinal cord disease). I've had angina for a long time, always after exercise or physical exertion. Even if I was hypothyroid or euthyroid I'd have chest pain, so I doubt it is from hyperthyroidism in my case. Plus I think I had it when I was younger. What causes it in someone so young?

There is an angina known as exercise-induced angina. I would slow down my work outs and also talk to your physician.  If he thinks it is ok to slowly work your exercise routine back up to where you would like to be then  I would listen to him.

Also some people with this condition are on Calcium Channel Blockers. Another topic to talk with your physician about.

Gentle Hugs.
