Thanks for the question

Characteristics of typical anginal pain are;

Central chest pain which is crushing or heaviness in chest and radiates to arm/s
Chest pain aggravates on exertion or stress
Chest pain relieves at rest

However atypical presentation of an anginal pain is not uncommon, therefore you should consult a doctor.

Hope that answers
