Angina Pectoris

Stabbing chest-pains.
Palpitations. Dizziness.
You are not having
a heart-attack.

Often mistaken for a heart-attack, Angina Pectoris is a symptom occuring when the coronary arteries fail to supply the heart muscle with sufficient oxygenated blood. Pain ranges from a dull ache to a severe crushing sensation. Sometimes spreading to the left shoulder and arm. Even to other parts of the body. May be accompanied by a feeling of suffocation.

Attack trigger factors ::
Over-exertion after a heavy meal. Excitation.

Preventives ::
Reduce weight. Avoid coffee and tobacco.

Treatment ::
Nitroglycerin is known to ease the pain but complete cure comes from treatment of the underlying disease that triggers off Angina. If attacks persist check with your doctor. It could be artheroacleroala (hardening of the arteries) or hypertension you're suffering from.
