Angina Pain

Variant Angina
Variant angina (also known as Prinzmetal's angina) is a rare type of angina. Pain or discomfort usually occurs at rest and during the night or early morning hours. This pain tends to be severe, but is relieved by medicine.
 

Treating Pain With Angina

Treatment for angina pain involves medicine and lifestyle changes. When these things are not enough to control the condition, special procedures may be needed. Angioplasty and coronary artery bypass surgery (CABG) are two common procedures used to treat pain.
 
If you have angina, it is important to know:
 
  • The pattern of your pain
  • About your medicine
  • How to control your angina
  • The limits on your physical activity.
     
You should also know how and when to seek medical help.
