Welcome to HCM,
This sudden pain in chest should not be neglected.
As this type of pain he had in the past so angina should be ruled out.
Tell your friend to go ER and get examined.
With EKG we get clue about coronary problem.
Even this pain might be due to gastric, we can not take risk.
Ok and bye.
