Health Tip: Suggestions to Help Manage Angina
Recognize changes to the normal pattern
(HealthDay News) -- Angina describes the pain and discomfort that occurs when the heart lacks a sufficient supply of oxygenated blood.
The National Heart Lung and Blood Institute offers these suggestions to help manage angina symptoms:
- Know how long and how vigorously you can exercise without causing angina, and always stop exercising before you reach the point of chest pain or discomfort.
- Do your best to avoid or limit emotional stress. Exercising and practicing relaxation techniques can help.
- Don't overeat.
- Don't push yourself too hard when it comes to work, hobbies, sex and other physical activities.
- Know when your symptoms become severe enough that you should seek immediate medical attention.
