thanks for your query
as per symptoms you described you may may have angina.for confirmation you have to go for stress test

Angina is a type of chest discomfort caused by poor blood flow through the blood vessels (coronary vessels) of the heart muscle

there are two types of angina
1) stable angina where the chest pain or other symptom only occurs with a certain amount of activity or stress

2) Unstable angina is chest pain that is sudden and often gets worse over time. You may be developing unstable angina if the chest pain
