Reversible Myocardial ischemia

I am 37 year male, with a medium heavy stressful lifestyle. I felt a sort of uneasiness a few days ago and have undergone several tests, including pulmonary function test, 2D echo test, Treadmill test etc, to determine the position of my heart. Though other tests are normal, the Treadmill test (TMT) has been found positive for reversible myocardial ischemia. The TMT report "Good exercise tolerance, acheived 86% APMHR and workload of 10 mtrs chronotropic response is normal, ST changes seen during exercise and recovery period, normal BP response, no chest pain / hypotension noticed, no significant arrythmia is seen, TMT is positive for reversible myocardial ischemia." I sometimes feel a soft, not very strong, pain in left upper side of my chestr. What does this mean, am I a heart patient now? Previously I have been a smoker but have left smoking for over an year now. What should I do now? Is angiography required? what are the precautions I can take now to prevent any further deteroriation?
