Can angina be left untreated?
Angina is a symptom, not a health condition. It is a warning sign of a heart condition. Angina is often a sign of undiagnosed narrowing of blood vessels. If left untreated, narrowing blood vessels can lead to heart attack, irregular heart rhythm or heart failure. You should consult the doctor immediately if you have any pain near your heart.
