The classical anginal pain is typically relieved by taking rest or anti-anginal medication. But in case of worsening of the disease consultĀ  your doctor. The following are danger signals that warrant medical attention:

  1. Chest pain or discomfort not relieved even after taking three tablets at 5 minute intervals.
  2. Angina lasting for more than 20 minutes.
  3. Increase in frequency, severity of angina (i.e. if it gets precipitated by less exertion than before).
  4. Angina associated with breathlessness, sweating, fainting, nausea or vomiting.
  5. Angina associated with abnormally high or low pulse rate.
