What is Angina?
Angina is a physical condition that causes severe chest pain or discomfort when a certain area of the heart muscle does not receive adequate amounts of oxygenated blood. While the pain usually presents in the chest, chronic pain from angina can manifest in the shoulders, arms, neck, jaw, and back.
Chest pain isn’t necessarily an angina symptom – it could be the result of other issues, from short-term heartburn, to serious panic attacks.
Is Angina pain considered a disability by the Canadian government?
Alone, angina doesn’t constitute as a disease. Rather, the condition is seen as a symptom of a more serious problem, like an underlying heart condition such as Coronary Artery Disease (CAD).
Because angina pain is linked to potentially fatal heart conditions like CAD, angina treatment may qualify for disability benefits from the Canadian government.
Like many differently-abled Canadians, who are eligible for Disability Tax Credits or savings plans through the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA), they don’t bother claiming the benefits they’re entitled to. They may be unaware their condition qualifies for benefits, or they simply can’t be bothered going through the tedious Disability Tax Credit application process.
