In brief: Angina

Angina basically means chest pain.
There are symptoms that tend to tell us that someone is having a heart attack. One can have squeezing type of chest pain, or a heaviness on the chest. The pain can radiate up to the neck, jaw, or left shoulder and arm. There is usually shortness of breath, and cold sweats, as well as palpitations. Nausea and vomiting can also occur.
