Angina is the name for chest pain that arises when there is diminished blood supply to the heart. Symptoms also include feelings of squeezing and compression in the chest. It is also associated with heaviness, stabbing chest pain and tightness. Alternatively called as angina pectoris as well. Because its symptoms are so overlapping with those of other discomforts and indigestion it can become difficult to recognize this disorder at first. However, anyone feeling unexplained heaviness, congestion, and pain in chest should seek medical attention promptly. It is a symptom of other heart diseases. So, getting a proper medical evaluation becomes essential.
