In brief: Usually pain

A clogged artery in the heart prevents oxygen from being delivered to the heart muscle.
This will cause pain especially when the heart is being stressed as during exercise or in cold weather. The pain is usually experienced as squeezing or pressure and can be present in the chest, neck, back, or arm. A person may also get sweaty and feel short of breath.
