Most people feel angina symptoms in the chest. The most common symptom is chest pain
or pressure, or a strange feeling in the chest. But you might feel symptoms in other
parts of your body. Some people feel pain, pressure, or a strange feeling in the back,
neck, jaw, or upper belly, or in one or both shoulders or arms.
Other symptoms of angina include shortness of breath, nausea or vomiting, lightheadedness
or sudden weakness, or a fast or irregular heartbeat.
Women are somewhat more likely than men to have other symptoms like shortness of breath,
nausea, and back or jaw pain.
