1 doctor agrees
In brief: Yes
Angina, the pain of insufficient blood flow to the heart due to coronary artery blockages occurs in both men and women but somewhat differently.
First women in general get coronary artery disease approximately a decade older than men, thus angina at an older age. Second, while women do get classic angina , they also get atypical symptoms such as nausea, sweating and dizziness more than men.

In brief: Depends
Between ages 40 and 60.
Men are more commonly diagnosed with angina. After 60 the male predominance diminishes.
