What does Angina feel like?

Can someone describe what Angina feels like?  And where it is typically felt?  Would I know it if I had it?  A personal account would be greatly appreciated.

Hi there!

There is no specific description of how angina would feel like, though most people feel it like a crushing or squeezing pain with or without reference to other regions; while there are others who may not have any symptoms at all. The best way to deal with chest pain/ discomfort is have it evaluated at the ER (if acute) or by an internist for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate management.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
