how do you code a chest pain, probable angina pectoris in an outpatient case. I know that I shouldn't assign a code for angina pectoris since it's probable. however which code should I use for chest pain 1)R07.9 or 2) R07.89

Unless there is some description to the type or location of the chest pain I use R07.9
