Welcome to HCM
We understand your concern
You are having this pain for two years.
You should have noticed when and how it is coming and going.
I think it is not constant.
Pain diminishes when you hold breath.
Most probably it is a muscle contraction, but you need to be sure.
General government run hospitals are there to help you.
They don't charge. Please be sure to consult a government physician,
