Brief Answer:
Better to get done ecg first.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your question on Health Care Magic.
I can understand your concern.
In my opinion, you should first get done ecg to rule out cardiac cause because cardiac diseases can cause similar left sided chest pain.
If ecg is normal then no need to worry for cardiac disease.
Gastritis can be the cause. So avoid stress and tension. Avoid hot and spicy food. Avoid junk food. Start proton pump inhibitors.
Hope I have solved your query.
I will be happy to help you further.
Wish you good health. Thanks.
