Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Have you had any abnormal EKGs? Abnormal stress tests?
Basically ischemic heart disease means lack of oxygen to the heart.
Which can come from many conditions, but essentially conditions that can lead to a heart attack.
If you've never had a heart issue in the past, I'm not sure why they would put that on your health records, but perhaps they found some issue with a previous EKG or echocardiogram that caused suspicion for heart issues?
OK, they must have suspected "angina" at that time, and that is why they put that diagnosis in your chart.

Having it in your medical chart doesn't mean that you actually have it.
It means your doctor suspected it at one time.
Whether or not you have it depends on the results of the testing -- especially a cardiac stress test (which should have been ordered if you were having chest pains).
Best of luck to you.
