i can do an intensive 10 min workout and do a 2 mile run and sprint uphill at the end and i feel ok.

    well the family history should buy you an angiogram bud. i know you're in good shape but athletes can have really bad heart disease while overweight "unhealthy" people can have clean arteries. push for further testing.
