In brief: Chest pain from hear

Angina is the symptom that develops when there is a mismatch between the amount of oxygen required by the heart muscle and the amount provided be bloodflow.
The sensation is a discomfort or sometimes squeezing or crushing pain centered or sometimes slightly left in the chest. It is not generally changed with position or with respiration. It generally gets worse with exertion or emotion.
