Heart attack: Four triggers of a potentially lethal coronary artery spasm

It’s possible for the pain to spread to the neck, jaw, shoulder or arm – and it tends to occur in the early mornings and during the night.

The pain can be variable, but it usually lasts between five to 30 minutes, with symptoms not improving by changing position.

Variant angina can lead to shortness of breath, and can even lead to loss of consciousness.

Tests for variant angina include a blood test, an electrocardiogram (ECG), an ultrasound heart scan and coronary angiography.
