Getting chest pain. Worst when bent down, cannot walk fast. ECG normal. Cause?

My mother has been getting chest pains for many years now. She is much worse now especially when she bends down . She cannot walk as fast as she used to as she gets out of breath. She had an ECG a a couple of years ago which was ok. However she could not do the treadmill. We are all worried. Can you please help. Can you please tell me what is causing these ailments is it her heart . Can she be cured.

Cardiologist 's  Response
Dear sir/ Madam
Thanks for your query to us.
Normally chest pain which comes in certain position is not anginal. 2 important questions in her case are, if pain comes on exertion too and how long it lasts. These will guide the investigations for a cardiac or non-cardiac cause.
If a person can not walk on treadmill and is otherwise eligible for stress testing, a pharmacological stress test can be done. Consult your cardiologist and process accordingly.
