Were you looking for information about Angina? Anjana is a common misspelling of angina.
 
Angina is chest pain or discomfort that occurs when the heart muscle is not getting enough oxygen-rich blood. This occurs when the coronary arteries become narrowed or clogged, causing a decrease in the amount of blood that goes to the heart. There are three types of angina -- stable, unstable, and variant -- each with different symptoms. For a lot of people, symptoms of angina are triggered by physical exertion, emotion, and exposure to extreme hot or cold temperatures.
