Now a days whenever I climb stairs or do a jogging, I feel left arm pain and left chest pain.

Welcome to Healthcare magic.

As per your given clinical description,there is a possibility of Anginal chest pain in you case. Why because you already have the minor heart problem that was diagnosed in TMT test previously.

The typical features of Anginal chest pain is pain increases during exertion (climbing stairs,running etc).

I suggest you to consult cardiologist ASAP and get done ECG,Blood work, and TMT again. After getting results from the mentioned tests yow will be treated accordingly.

Hope, I have cleared your query.
If you need any further clarification,let me know.
