Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) and Angina Symptoms

Written by FoundHealth, ColleenO.

Signs and symptoms of CAD , angina , and heart attack include:

  • Chest pain (angina)—This may feel like heaviness, burning, choking, tightness, pressure, or squeezing, usually behind the breastbone, but sometimes starting or radiating into the arms, left shoulder, neck, back, teeth, or jaw.
  • Nausea and/or vomiting
  • Dizziness
  • Lightheadedness
  • Difficulty breathing or shortness of breath particularly with physical exertion
  • Sweating

The more signs and symptoms you have and the longer an episode of chest pain lasts (more than 15 minutes), the more likely it is that you are experiencing a heart attack, rather than an episode of angina. In this situation, seek medical care immediately.

It can occur when there is insufficient circulation of blood to the heart in normal a person needs. If you see most people suffer from Angina attack because of taking too much stress, tension, not exercising, not eating healthy foods etc. If we control on this stuff I surly say we can control angina attack. Is the medication Imdur helpful to treat chest pain (Angina) http://www.canadiandrugsaver.com/heart-and-blood-pressure/imdur_175.html
