Were you looking for information about Angina? Angeina is a common misspelling of angina.
Angina occurs in more than 6 million Americans. The condition, which is characterized by chest pain or discomfort, is caused by a temporary lack of oxygen-rich blood to the heart muscle. For most people, symptoms are triggered by physical exertion, smoking, and emotion. Although an episode of angina is not a heart attack, it does mean that you have a greater chance of having a heart attack. Depending on the type of angina, treatment may involve lifestyle changes, medications, and special procedures.
