Angina is a type of chest pain caused by reduced blood flow to the heart. Lower blood flow means your heart isn’t getting enough oxygen. This pain often occurs with physical activity or stress.
Stable angina, also called angina pectoris, is the most common kind of angina. Stable angina is a predictable pattern of chest pain. You can usually track the pattern based on what you are doing when you feel chest pain. Tracking stable angina can help you manage your symptoms more easily.
