Brief Answer:
Can be gastritis or muscular pain

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for choosing HCM for your query!
Your symptoms are very typical of classical angina.
I would suggest you to go for few baseline tests of cardiology like
Tread mill test- To see the blood supply of the heart during exercise.Combined together with echo sensitivity of test is more then 85%.Both these tests when combined togetherwill rule out the possiblitity of coronary artery blockage.
This pain can be muscular or due to gastritis or acid peptic disorder also.

Thanks!
