What problems does angina cause?
So angina causes two kinds of problem. One is symptoms that stop people from exercising, which can be disabling for people who want to exercise, but it can also be the warning sign of a risk of heart attack. So as cardiologists, we take angina very seriously. We try and find out what the cause is, and then we try and work out the best way to manage it for the individual patient.
