Question by maddy2: What is angina is it any different than a heart attack?
I have already had a heart catherazation they found 30% blockage and said it wasnt anything to worry about but my blood pressure is all over the place
Answer by stl_grrrl
Angina is chest pain. It can be actual chest pain, or people can have an anginal equivalent– shoulder pain, jaw pain, shortness of breath, etc. It is a chronic condition for which there are medications. A heart attack is the death of heart muscle due to lack of oxygen to the heart– usually because of blocked blood flow but can also be due to shock or vasospasm. A 30% blockage isn’t something that is treated generally, other than diet and exercise, maybe medications. Blood pressure should be less than 120/80. If it isn’t, talk with your doctor.
