What is Stable Angina?

Stable angina is the most common form of angina and typically occurs with exertion and goes away with rest. If chest discomfort is a new symptom for you, it’s important to see your doctor to find out what’s causing your chest pain and to get proper treatment. If your stable angina gets worse or changes, seek medical attention immediately.
Characteristics of stable angina:
-Develops when your heart works harder, such as when you exercise or climb stairs
-Can usually be predicted and the pain is usually similar to previous types of chest pain you’ve had
-Lasts a short time, perhaps five minutes or less
-Disappears sooner if you rest or use your angina medication
