Brief Answer:
You have to perform a preliminary check up for your safety.

Detailed Answer:
Hello!

Thank you for asking on HCM!

The symptoms appear non serious. However I would recommend you to consult an ER doctor and perform a resting ECG, and eventually some blood tests (including cardiac enzymes), as sometimes ischemic heart disease may present with digestive symptoms and heartburn.

Hope to have been helpful to you!

Greetings!
