Angina pectoris is one of the most prominent health problems that many suffer from, especially patients with heart and pressure, and it is a type of chest pain caused by reduced blood flow to the heart, and it is one of the symptoms of coronary artery disease.

According to the mayoclinic website, the symptoms of angina pectoris are:

Stable angina is the most common form of angina. This usually occurs when you exert yourself and goes away with rest. For example, pain that occurs when walking uphill or in cold weather may be angina.

Angina pectoris in women


The symptoms of angina in women can differ from the symptoms of angina that occur in men, these differences may delay the search for treatment, for example, chest pain is a common symptom in women with angina, but it may not be the only symptom or The most common symptom in women.

Angina is caused by reduced blood flow to your heart muscle. Your blood carries oxygen, which your heart muscle needs to survive. When your heart muscle doesn't get enough oxygen, it causes a condition called ischemia.

Coronary artery disease is the most common cause of reduced blood flow to the heart muscle. The arteries of the heart (coronary artery) can narrow due to fatty deposits called plaques. This is called atherosclerosis.
