thank you.
it may be gastric problem or ischemic heart disease.
but the pain of IHD is usually felt at the retrosternal area & may radiate to left upper limb,neck,back.
associated risk factors may present like HTN,DM,hyperlipidemia or smoking.
so,at first an ecg should be done,if it is normal then an endoscopy may be done.
