These attacks generally occur at rest, during the night or early morning, and occur in clusters.
Patients with stable angina don’t feel pain at rest, but they do feel chest pain during intense physical exercise, because that’s when the myocardium has increased oxygen demand, which leads to transient or demand ischemia.
The chest pain stops when the exercise stops, so these patients often just rest rather than going to the emergency department or ED.
