Angina is a common symptom of coronary artery disease (CAD) and heart attack. It occurs when your heart isn’t getting enough blood.
Angina causes chest pain or discomfort. It may feel like pressure on your chest or a squeezing pain in your chest. You may experience pain in your shoulders, arms, neck, jaw, or back, too. Angina can also cause shortness of breath, dizziness, and nausea.
