Intermittent pinching sensation for a few minutes on the chest during long walks. Had bypass grafting recently. On Plavix, aspirin and Metoprolol. Suggestion?

My husband had 2 stents placed in his OM ( bypass graft) a little over a month ago and intermittently when taking a long walk has a pinching sensation on the left chest, and is relieved after a few minutes of rest. He is on Plavix, aspirin and Metoprolol . His BP is between 90/60 to 120/60, no shortness of breath and he is feeling good.What is your opinion?

God bless
Good luck
