Angina is a form of chest pain caused by a narrowing of the arteries that impedes blood flow to the heart and forces the heart to work harder. In this video, you can take a closer look at the causes and symptoms of angina.
Unlike a heart attack, individuals with angina experience a cramping or constricted feeling. Angina may be classified as stable if it generally occurs with exercise and stops quickly. It may be classified as unstable if it lasts longer and happens at rest or with very little exertion.
