Symptoms of angina pectoris

Angina pectoris can be classified into attacks that occur during exertion and attacks that occur at rest. Angina on exertion is the most common form of angina pectoris. Angina on rest is a rare form of angina pectoris, and includes those with a high risk of developing into a rapid myocardial infarction. Exertional angina is a tightening pain in the chest when climbing stairs or hills, or chest pain when lifting heavy objects, that goes away after resting. Importantly, the pain is described as “squeezing” or “tightening. It is not a sharp pain. The pain may be felt in the anterior chest, solar plexus, shoulders, neck, arms, etc. In some cases, the back teeth may hurt. The pain often subsides in a short period of time, usually only a few minutes.
