Brief Answer:
Cardiac status needs to be evaluated.

Detailed Answer:
Welcome To HCM. I am Dr Anshul Varshney. I understand your concern.
Such abdominal squeezing with sweating needs evaluation of heart at priority as it could be anginal pains.
Take him to ER, get his ECG, Chest X-ray, Trop T done and all if normal, he would require Ultrasound Abdomen to rule out presence of any stone or abdominal issues causing pain and sweating.
However if cardiac, that's medical emergency so should be considered priority.
So please take him to ER Now.
I hope it helps you.
If you have any further query, please ask me.
