Brief Answer:
Can be gastritis or a muscle related issue.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.
The feeling of cramps beneath the left breast which is not associated with sweating palpitation or breathlessness is not likely to be related to a cardiac issue. This can be a muscle related issue or due to gastritis.
You can do a hot compress and get some oral muscle relaxants prescribed and see if it helps. Also avoid having hot and spicy foods and you can take omeprazole available over the counter and see if it helps.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.
Dr. Praveen Tayal.
