Hi Greetings

I think this condition could be Pheochromocytoma which can produce frequent chest pains which mimic cardiac pain.

But it is benign condition which is completely curable. You need to get the CECT abdomen done and urinary VMA.

After confirmation surgical resection will the treatment of choice.

Get well soon.
