They said that they think it is muscular or angina
Expert:  DrRussMD replied 12 months ago.

Angina could be ruled out with a stress test, or stress echo.

Muscular could be assessed by seeing an MD of physical medicine and rehabilitation.

These doctors are experts in structural assessment and diagnosis.
