Angina pectoris is a type of temporary chest pain or discomfort which occurs as a result of decreased blood flow to the heart muscle which is usually not a heart attack but a sign of increased risk for heart attack that is generally characterized by symptoms such as squeezing pressure, heaviness, tightness or pain in the chest that can occur sudden or recur over time.
