Cause #2: Angina Pectoris

Angina is a condition that typically manifests itself as a sensation of squeezing in the chest area. It can also spread to the shoulders and other parts of the upper torso. The pain is a result of insufficient oxygen being supplied to the heart due to an inadequate blood flow.

Angina will only usually be experienced after the patient has been exercising, with nothing usually being felt when at rest. It is not necessarily a dangerous condition in itself but can be a sign of a potentially serious underlying problem. You should arrange to speak with a medical professional if you are experiencing these symptoms.
