Subtle in women: Angina is a dull chest discomfort or pressure usually in center or across chest, often radiating to left arm, neck or throat. Gets worse with physical activity or emotion, sometimes at night. It can be subtle or atypical especially in women who tend to ignore their heart symptoms until they get very sick. Usually it's from a blockage in a coronary artery though there are other causes too.
