About Angina

Also known as Angina Pectoris

ABOUT THE DISEASE

Angina is chest pain or discomfort caused when heart muscles do not get enough oxygen-rich blood. It is thus a symptom of underlying heart problem. It usually happens because the arteries supplying the heart become hardened and narrowed. It may feel like pressure or squeezing in chest. The discomfort can also occur in shoulders, arms, neck, jaw or back.

There are many types of angina, including stable angina, unstable angina, microvascular angina and Prinzmetals angina.
