Chest pain is considered chronic if it last for 3 to 6 months either continuous or frequent on and often daily. Heart pain is known as angina. Heart pain often follows irregular heart beats or low blood pressure. The condition following chest pain caused by heart attack often results in emergency situation and patient needs to be treated immediately to prevent fatal outcome. Heart pain can be on and often known as "Prinzmetal Angina". Such pain is caused by occasional decreased blood supply to heart and needs further investigation. Chronic intermittent chest pain lasting 3 to 6 month in and often could be a chronic "Prinzmetal Angina". Chronic continuous pain of 3 to 6 months is never heart pain.
