Angina is described as pain, pressure, or burning in the chest. It is caused by decreased blood flow in the arteries leading to the heart.
Angina (Angina pectoris)
The heart is the muscle responsible for pumping blood throughout the body. Blood transports oxygen, which is essential for the proper functioning of all your organs, including your heart. If the heart does not receive enough oxygen, pain (angina) occurs as a sensation of tightening or a burning sensation in the middle of the chest (pectoris). Angina is also variously described as an oppressive sensation in the chest, tingling in the arm or extreme fatigue.
Heart Attack (Myocardial infarction)
