Explaining The Terminology
Acute Myocardial Infarction
A heart attack.
Chest pain or discomfort that occurs when your heart muscle does not get enough blood. Angina may feel like pressure or a squeezing pain in your chest. The pain may also occur in your shoulders, arms, neck, jaw or back. It may also feel like indigestion. Angina is a symptom of coronary artery disease (CAD) the most common type of heart disease.
There are three types of angina: stable, unstable and variant (Prinzmetal’s). It is very important to understand the differences between the types.
Stable Angina is the most common type. It occurs when the heart is working harder than usual. It is not a heart attack but makes it more likely that you will have a heart attack in the future.
Unstable Angina is a very dangerous condition that requires emergency treatment. It is a sign that a heart attack could occur soon. Unlike stable angina, it does not follow a pattern. It can occur without physical exertion and is not relieved by rest or medicine.
Variant angina (Prinzmetal’s) is rare and usually occurs at rest. The pain can be severe and usually strikes between midnight and early morning. It can be relieved by medication.
Not all chest pain or discomfort is angina. Chest pain or discomfort can be caused by a heart attack, lung problems (such as an infection or a blood clot), heartburn or a panic attack. However, all chest pain should be checked by a doctor.
