Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

You have not stated your age , personal or family histories...
Pain on effort is highly suggestive of angina.
You must see your doctor as soon as possible
EKG /HOLTER (24 to 48 hour ambulatory monitoring) / ECHOcardiogram / TMT (Treadmill exercise ECG) / LABORATORY work-up – may all be necessary for further assessment and assistance.
The treating doctor may suggest them depending on need, based on his assessment of the situation.

You may also need investigation for reflux

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
