If you have coronary heart disease near Phoenix, angina—or chest pain—may be a familiar symptom. Angina can be a warning a sign of an impending heart attack, so it’s important to discuss it with your heart doctor. This video explains more.
Angina occurs when the heart doesn’t get a sufficient amount of oxygen, usually because of plaque build-up in the coronary arteries that supply the heart with oxygen-rich blood. Stable angina improves with rest and medication, while unstable angina occurs during rest and does not improve. Unstable angina requires urgent medical care.
