How Can You Know If You Have Angina? New York, NY

How Can You Know If You Have Angina?

x-ray of heart

It can be confusing as you consider which chest pain you have and if it’s serious or not. Angina is a type of chest pain that is causes by the reduction of blood flow to your heart. If Angina is left untreated it may lead to a heart attack.

If you’re wondering if you have Angina you will typically have these common symptoms associated with stress, physical activity, large meals, extreme temperatures, or cigarette smoking:

  • Tightness in your chest
  • Pressure in your chest
  • Discomfort in your chest
  • Shortness of breath
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Abdominal Pain
  • Sharp Chest Pain
  • Squeezing in your chest
  • A heaviness in your chest

Angina is not a disease. Angina is often a symptom of a heart problem. Due to the fact that angina’s symptoms and other heart problems have similar symptoms it is important to determine if your chest pain is angina. Dr. Alan Benvenisty will perform a physical exam and discuss your medical and family history with you. There are tests that he will use to help determine your heart condition and how severe it is.

Tests to determine the causes or type of angina you may have include:

  • Electrocardiogram (ECG)
  • Stress Test
  • Coronary Catheterization
  • Electron Beam  Computed Tomography (EBCT)
  • Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)

If you or a loved one is experiencing chest pain and wondering if angina might be the cause, contact Dr. Benvenisty at his Amsterdam Avenue office today. Dr. Alan Benvenisty is a  recognized and distinguished Board certified vascular surgeon.

Dr. Benvenisty was excellent and helped us with my husband's extensive leg swelling related to diabetes. We had another specialist who didn't help us last year. We're planning to stay with Dr. Benvenisty now! He's detailed oriented, matter-of-fact and friendly. An excellent doctor I would strongly recommend.


Dr. Benvenisty treated my mother in the ER during this time of the covid outbreak. He was a part of a fantastic team of doctors that were brought in to find out what was ailing my mother. He is first and for most experienced in many areas as my mother was diagnosed with pancreatitis. Although he transferred the surgery to another member of his team, he gave me his mobile and kept me informed of her condition/diagnosis at a time where I was unable to be with her myself because of this pandemic. His heart, compassion, understanding and bedside manner are things that I will not ever forget. He is an excellent doctor and truly a great human being.

Howard L.

Dr. Benvenisty is the most caring physician that I know. He is brilliant, highly ethical and trustworthy. His knowledge extends well beyond his specialty. He makes referrals to the best possible physicians. I know Dr. Benvenisty for 25 years and have complete confidence in him.
