Thank you for your question.
I am Dr Saha, I shall try my best to help you.
I am sorry for his symptoms.
You are right,those symptoms can be due to heart attack, angina.

Stroke or TIA is also possible.

Though it is possible to be due to simpler causes like gastritis but I feel you need to take him to ER.

EKG, blood work, echo, scan should be taken.

I hope this information helps.
