What does angina feel like?
Angina often feels like a heaviness or tightness in your chest, but this may spread to your arms, neck, jaw, back or stomach as well. Some people describe the feeling of severe tightness, while others say it’s more of a dull ache.
Symptoms of experiencing shortness of breath have been reported too.
Angina is often brought on by physical activity, an emotional upset, cold weather or after a meal. Symptoms usually subside after a few minutes.
If your symptom pattern changes, you should speak to your doctor immediately.
