Angina is chest pain or pressure caused by lack of blood flow to the heart muscles. The medical condition occurs when an individual is suffering from coronary artery disease. Coronary artery disease is a form of heart disease that may lead to heart attacks, when the plaque buildup in the arteries is too great. Angina's are commonly confused with a heart attack. The symptoms of an angina resemble that of a heart attack. The pain and symptoms occur when the blood flow to the heart has decreased. While angina's will most likely stop, individuals will want to consult with their medical professional for treatment and prevention options.

Symptoms and severity of Angina may vary among individuals. However, the common symptoms of an angina is a squeezing or tightness in the chest.

Angina is the result of a decrease in blood flow to the heart muscle. This is usually caused by coronary artery disease. When the arteries have a buildup, blood flow decreases, causing a reduction in oxygen-rich blood that is necessary. There are three types of angina's: stable, unstable, and variant angina.
To diagnosis an angina, a medical professional will ask about symptoms, pain, history, conduct a physical exam, etc. There are also different tests that may be done to monitor the heart and confirm whether an individual is suffering from an angina.
Different treatments and drugs may be used to reduce the frequency and symptoms of an angina. Depending on the type of angina, different forms of treatment will be used. These include, medications, changes in diet or lifestyle, angioplasty, and more. Consult with a medical professional for a treatment plan that works for you.
