 +According to the [[National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute]],​ '''​[[Angina]]'''​ is "chest pain or discomfort you get when your [[heart]] muscle does not get enough [[blood]]. It may feel like pressure or a squeezing pain in your chest. It may feel like indigestion. You may also feel pain in your shoulders, arms, neck, jaw or back."
 +
 +"​Angina is a symptom of [[coronary artery disease]] (CAD), the most common [[heart disease]]. CAD happens when a sticky substance called [[plaque]] builds up in the arteries that supply blood to the heart, reducing blood flow."
 +
 +"There are three types of angina: stable, unstable and variant. Unstable angina is the most dangerous. It does not follow a pattern and can happen without physical exertion. It is does not go away with rest or medicine. It is a sign that you could have a [[heart attack]] soon."

 +"Not all chest pain or discomfort is angina."<​ref>​http://​www.nlm.nih.gov/​medlineplus/​angina.html</​ref>​
 +
 +
 +Angina pectoris is the name for a clinical syndrome rather than a disease. The term is used to describe a discomfort due to [[transient myocardial ischaemia]] ([[ischaemia]]). It is likely to occur when the [[coronary blood flow]] is less than is required. Symptoms include [[pain in the chest]] radiating to the left arm, [[breathlessness]],​ [[palpitation]],​ [[sweating]],​ [[nausea]], [[dizziness]] or [[fainting]],​ [[heaviness]] or [[tightness in the chest]] or upper abdomen.
 +
 +Ayurvedic treatment consists of restoring the digestive fire ([[agni]]), eliminating toxins from the body, pacifying the vitiated body energies and toning the heart. Diet and regimen adjustments are also advised, emphasis being placed on the avoidance of stress and emotional anxiety. Tension at the mental level must always be addressed when disorders of the heart are present.
