Hi. Angina is heart pain caused by decreased flow in the coronary arteries and it can last from a few minutes to an hour before it goes away. It is a threatened heart attack. A true heart attack comes from an actual blockage of a coronary artery with no blood flow to part of the heart causing death of a portion of heart muscle Let me know if you need more information please
