Angina, also known as pectoris, results from insufficient oxygen supply to the heart muscle. The chest pain usually is under or to the left of the sternum (breast bone) and may radiate to the upper back, neck, jaws, shoulders and left arm or right arm or both. Angina frequently follows after overeating, excitement, exertion and exposure to cold.
Associated symptoms are:
- Difficulty in breathing
Angina usually occurs after the age of 50, more often in men than in women.
