  Health Tip: Understanding Angina
Factors that can trigger chest pain

By Diana Kohnle

(HealthDay News) -- Angina is the medical term for chest pain that occurs when your heart doesn't get enough oxygenated blood.

The National Heart Lung and Blood Institute says triggers may include:

  • Being under emotional stress.
  • Being exposed to extreme hot or cold temperatures.
  • Eating a heavy meal.
  • Smoking tobacco or using cocaine.
  • Taking medication that narrows blood vessels.
