Use ♥ to act now on angina: Join the campaign and raise awareness!
Angina is an underlying symptom of cardiovascular disease, which is known to cause 4.1 million deaths1 a year in Europe alone.
Although angina is relatively common, it can still be difficult to identify. Angina can manifest itself typically or atypically, so it is often mistaken for indigestion, fatigue or stress by both patients and physicians.
More needs to be done to ensure that health care professionals don’t down play angina or miss the symptoms. By recognizing angina quickly, physicians can stop cardiovascular disease from getting worse – which prevents sufferers from living life to the full.
