What Is Angina?
Angina (an-JI-nuh or AN-juh-nuh) is chest pain or discomfort that occurs when an area of your heart muscle doesn't get enough oxygen-rich blood. Angina may feel like pressure or squeezing in your chest. The pain also may occur in your shoulders, arms, neck, jaw, or back. Angina pain may even feel like indigestion. Angina isn't a disease; it's a symptom of an underlying heart problem. Angina usually is a symptom of coronary heart disease (CHD), also called coronary artery disease. CHD is the most common type of heart disease in adults. It occurs if a fatty material called plaque (plak) builds up on the inner walls of your coronary arteries. These arteries carry oxygen-rich blood to your heart.

The inset image shows a cross-section of an artery with plaque buildup. Plaque narrows and stiffens the coronary arteries. This reduces the flow of oxygen-rich blood to the heart muscle, causing chest pain. Plaque buildup also can lead to a

MeSH Angina pectoris , commonly known as angina , is severe chest pain due to ischemia (a lack of blood, hence a lack of oxygen supply) of the heart muscle , generally due to obstruction or spasm of the coronary arteries (the heart's blood vessels). Coronary artery disease , the main cause of angina, is due to atherosclerosis of the cardiac arteries. The term derives from the Latin angina ("infection of the throat") from the Greek ankhone ("strangling"), and the Latin pectus ("chest"), and can therefore be translated as "a strangling feeling in the chest". There is a weak relationship between severity of pain and degree of oxygen deprivation in the heart muscle (i.e., there can be severe pain with little or no risk of a heart attack, and a heart attack can occur without pain).

What is angina?
Angina or angina pectoris refers to a pain in the centre of the chest which comes from the heart.
You experience a pain in the centre of the chest, which may also travel into the neck, jaw, and arms (especially the left). Angina is usually described as a crushing, heavy, or gripping pain. It mostly follows exercise, but may also be triggered by emotion, digesting a heavy meal, or going out in a cold wind. Sometimes you may also feel breathless.
Angina is rather similar to cramp in a muscle during vigorous exercise. It is caused by the muscles of the heart not receiving enough oxygen (via the blood) for the work they are performing. This is because the blood vessels which supply the heart muscles with oxygen have become narrowed. The main cause of narrowing of the blood vessels is age, but this is accelerated by cigarette smoking. To a lesser extent people with a high cholesterol level, people who are obese (overweight), and diabetics are also more at risk.

    About angina
    Angina is a symptom of coronary heart disease, and affects about 1.2 million people in the UK. An episode of angina typically starts with chest pain or tightness when you are doing some sort of physical exercise. It may feel like a heavy weight or a tightening across your upper chest. Angina pain is especially likely to occur when walking after a meal. Anger or stress also tends to make it worse. The pain may also be felt in your neck, throat or arms - making you feel that you are choking or that both arms are dead weights. The pain doesn't usually last for more than a few minutes and goes fairly quickly after resting. Indigestion and angina are often confused. As well as the pain, you may feel breathless, sweaty and have a sense of fear.

    Cardiac symptoms in women often differ from what the textbook says

    See More About:
    zSB(3,3) By DrRich Updated January, 2006 In standard textbooks of cardiology, much space is devoted to a description of the symptoms that typically occur with heart disease. In most cases, these "typical" symptoms turn out to be a recitation of the symptoms men get. In women, the symptoms can be quite different, and are usually regarded by cardiologists as being "atypical." However, since more women are dying from heart disease than men these days, it may be statistically more correct to consider men's symptoms as the ones that are "atypical." Angina in women When women have angina, they are more likely than men to experience "atypical" symptoms. Many women report a hot or burning sensation, or even tenderness to touch, in the back, shoulders, arms or jaw; often they have no chest discomfort at all. Any good doctor will think of angina whenever a patient describes any sort of transient, exertion-related discomfort located anywhere above the waist, and they really shouldn't be thrown off by "atypical" descriptions. However, because many doctors persist in believing that CAD is uncommon in women, they are all too likely to write such symptoms off to mere musculoskeletal pain or gastrointestinal disturbances.
