Chest Pain/Angina

members with Chest Pain/Angina

Angina is a term used to describe chest pain or discomfort caused by an inadequate blood supply to the heart. Angina is usually caused by a narrowing of blood vessels that supply the heart (atherosclerosis), therefore restricting blood flow to the heart muscle during periods of high demand. Patients with angina commonly complain of severe discomfort - normally in the chest, but sometimes radiating to the left arm or jaw, or associated with nausea and sweating - during periods of exertion or exercise.
