Can be gastric or cardiac.

Detailed Answer:
Hello there,
Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic for your query .
Have gone through your details and i appreciate your concerns.
As per your query answers are-
It could be cardiac or gastric in origin.
Initially few baseline tests of cardiology like 2d echo and stress test has to be done to rule out possibility of cardiac ischemia(lack of blood supply to heart).Pain could be felt in upper abdomen and thorax and radiations could be there
If these tests are normal an ultrasound abdomen should be done to rule out gastric involvement.As of now you can take Pantoprazole to see if pain responds to it or not.Gastric pain usually responds to antacids.
Thanks!
