Thanks for your query.

The repeated feeling of pain at the same point makes me suspicious of transient ischaemic problems in the heart muscle.

This needs a thorough cardiac work-up including ECG and Stress ECG which do not cost you more but give the information needed to evaluate your condition. For that you will have to take the services of a hospital.

High blood pressure and high cholesterol are the major factors causing such problems. Do not delay further in investigations and till then avoid the heavy work.

Hope I have answered your query. I will be available if you have any further queries.
