Gastritis can be a possibility.

Detailed Answer:
Hi

Thank you for asking HCM.

I have gone through your query. Your problem can be most likely due to gastritis. Cardiac ischemia also can present such pain. Better to take an ECG to rule out any cardiac cause of it. What digestive problems you had?

Do you have hypertension or (high cholesterol) dyslipidemia?
Do you have this pain associated with exertion?
How long this pain or discomfort last?
Do you have such discomfort while being hungry?
Any such episode during night time or early morning?
Any relieving factors like heat application or hot water bag?

Please provide above informations. I am happy to help you.
Thanks.
