Dear anish2win Hello I am Dr Ravinder Sharma. Medicine is full of complexities and it is really something like most probable diagnosis not the most definite diagnosis when we talk of symptoms and asks for a opinion.
To the bst of y knowledge, I would vote for a cardiac cause in a 66 year old patient complaining of pain in chest which increases on walking fast or climbing stairs. Feeling dizzy is also suggestive of impaired blood supply to brain --- may be due to a cardiac cause.I would advise you for a complete evalation by a cardiologist. As soon as we have a possible diagnosis we can think of treatment options. i hope this answers your concern. Do let me know if I can help you further int his regard Ravinder Sharma
