Angina is a form of chest pain caused by reduced blood flow going to the heart, and is a symptom of coronary artery disease. It is a relatively common condition, but it can still be hard to diagnose.
Those who have Angina often describe it as squeezing, pressure, heaviness, tightness feeling, or pain in the chest. It can either be a new pain that needs diagnosing by a Cardiologist, or it could be a recurring pain that was previously treated.
Other causes of chest pain need to be excluded. These include:
- Acid Reflux
- Muscular pains
