Stable Angina (Angina Pectoris)

Angina is the chest pain associated with poor blood supply through the coronary vessels; that carry blood and oxygen to the myocardium (the heart muscle).
Angina in itself is never a conclusively evident alarm about future possible heart attack, but it can always serve as a persuasively evident indicative tool.

Angina is further divided into:

  • Stable Angina
  • Unstable Angina

Stable Angina is a work-related chest pain and is observed when our body is exerts some activity. Stress may also lead to stable angina. The pain in case of stable angina is predictable and the person may seek relief if his body comes to rest. The pain is short-lived but is of progressive nature i.e it fastens up after the initial 1-2 minutes.
