Symptoms associated with angina include: Chest pain or discomfort Pain in your arms, neck, jaw, shoulder or back accompanying chest pain Nausea Fatigue Shortness of breath Sweating Dizziness The chest pain and discomfort common with angina may be described as pressure, squeezing, fullness or pain in the center of your chest. Some people with angina symptoms describe angina as feeling like a vise is squeezing their chest or feeling like a heavy weight has been placed on their chest. For others, it may feel like indigestion. The severity, duration and type of angina can vary. It's important to recognize if you have new or changing chest discomfort. New or different symptoms may signal a more dangerous form of angina (unstable angina) or a heart attack. Stable angina is the most common form of angina, and it typically occurs with exertion and goes away with rest. If chest discomfort is a new symptom for you, it's important to see your doctor to find out what's causing your chest pain and to get proper treatment. If your stable angina gets worse or changes, seek medical attention immediately. Characteristics of stable angina Develops when your heart works harder, such as when you exercise or climb stairs Can usually be predicted and the pain is usually similar to previous types of chest pain you've had Lasts a short time, perhaps five minutes or less Disappears sooner if you rest or use your angina medication Characteristics of unstable angina (a medical emergency) Occurs even at rest Is a change in your usual pattern of angina Is unexpected Is usually more severe and lasts longer than stable angina, maybe as long as 30 minutes May not disappear with rest or use of angina medication Might signal a heart attack Consult nearest physician for further assistance Regards
