Does Your Chest Hurt Durring Exercise? You May Have Angina

Here’s a video about a type of heart disease called Angina. If you have chest pains during exercise, then you should see a doctor about the possibility of having Angina.

GEORGE A. BELLER, MD, MACC: The signs and symptoms of angina are very straightforward. The patient experiences a feeling of pain or pressure, particularly with exertion, that is localized predominantly in the center of the chest, behind the breastbone. And it’s feeling of a diffuse nature, and it can move up into the neck and jaw and down either arm. But some people can experience it only up in the throat or jaw, and some will experience it way down, almost at the top of the stomach. But it typically occurs with physical activity, and then is relieved by rest.
