Live a good and healthy lifestyle: See your doctor if you experience any of these symptoms

Angina is a term used for chest pains caused by reduced blood flow to the heart muscle. Angina is a symptom of coronary artery disease. It is typically described as squeezing, pressure, heaviness, tightness or pain in your chest.

Angina, also called angina pectoris, can be a recurring problem or a sudden, acute health concern.

Angina is relatively common but can be hard to distinguish from other types of chest pains, such as the pain or discomfort of indigestion. If you have unexplained chest pain, seek medical attention right away.


Symptoms associated with angina include:

  • Chest pain or discomfort
  • Pain in your arms, neck, jaw, shoulder or back accompanying chest pain
  • Nausea
  • Fatigue
  • Shortness of breath
  • Sweating
  • Dizziness


You can help prevent angina by making the same lifestyle changes that might improve your symptoms if you already have angina. These include:

  • Quitting smoking
  • Monitoring and controlling other health conditions, such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol and diabetes
  • Eating a healthy diet
  • Maintaining a healthy weight
  • Reducing your stress level
