Angina (sometimes called angina pectoris) occurs when your heart doesn't get as much blood and oxygen as it needs because of a blockage of one or more of the heart's arteries (coronary arteries). This blockage causes pain in the chest. People who have angina describe the pain as a squeezing, suffocating or burning feeling.
