usually eases at rest and you can often find out what brings it on. (e.g. walking uphill). It should only last 10 minutes or less.
usually unpredictable. It may happen when one or more of the coronary arteries become even more blocked than they were before. Sadly, it may lead to a heart attack.
Angina is chest pain, discomfort, or tightness that occurs when an area of the heart is receiving less oxygenated blood.
Not a disease itself
A symptom of coronary artery disease, the most common type of heart disease.
The lack of oxygen rich blood to the heart is usually a result of narrower coronary arteries due to plaque buildup.
Narrow arteries increase the risk of pain, coronary artery disease, heart attack, and death.
Plaque may begin to build up where the arteries are damaged. ( because of smoking, lots of sugar, high cholesterol.)
When plaque builds up in the arteries, the condition is called atherosclerosis (ath-er-o-skler-O-sis).
Plaque blocks and narrows the arteries so blood cannot get through.
Some plaque is hard and stable and causes the arteries to become narrow and stiff.
This can greatly reduce blood flow to the heart and cause angina.
Soft plaque can break open the arteries and cause blood clots.
