Re: angina

Hi,
Usually older folk exposed to lifestyle or family (genetic) risk factors. But there are several types of angina, and in some cases it can strike suddenly without obvious reason. This why proper diagnosis is important.
The common form is chest pain or pressure, often with shortness of breath, and usually in response to exertion, stress, or after a meal.
People at greatest risk are those who smoke or have smoked significantly, have high BP, high cholesterol, little or no exercise, poor fitness, diabetes, obesity, emotional or physical stress and anxiety, etc. A family history of heart disease is often regarded as the most important contributor, closely followed by smoking.
Cheers, Beefsteak.
