Hi ,
Welcome to HCM ,
you can go ahead with some non invasive test like TMT ,
or you can opt for CT coronary angiogram , and if any report comes abnormal then go for angiogram.

classically heart related pain increase on exertion and relived on rest , if your pain have these charecteristic then directly go for angiogram ,
Angiogram is a small day care procedure , now a days done through wrist route and same day you can go home , test will take 10 to 15 min. time , and quite safer procedure ,
take care
