I started to have heart pains, please help

I just went for a walk and near the end of my walk I started to have heart pains. Felt like my heart was being squeezed about every three seconds. I went for a walk yesterday and I was fine. I was walking normally, strolling my daughter along. I just had a baby a few months ago and haven t really done serious cardio since, but I have one on many walks and even done some kick boxing. I am only 20 years old. Is this Angina? Could I have CAD? It is 4:30pm so I am not going to go see a doctor right away. Any advice?!Experience?!?! Never felt anything like this before! CAD I meant = coronary heart disease Also I do not smoke or drink alcohol. I eat healthy and am a little overweight from having a baby, but not obese.

1)Having CAD at your age with your history is unlikely. Do you have any family history with premature CAD? Do you have any shortness of breath? Are you experiencing excessive sweating? Are you feeling any pain in your left arm, jaw, neck? Are you pale? Do you have excessive bleeding? If you are experiencing such symptoms i would recommend ER. 2)You could be experiencing an anxiety attack or simply you over stressed yourself after lack of exercises (stress full) after your pregnancy.
