Gastric disturbances

Sir, My friend 24y male was suffering from severe gastric irritation since past two weeks. He was prescribed with pantoprazole40mg. Along with gastric irritations, he is having pain over the chest which sometimes radiates from the muscles around armpit which disappears soon. ECG was normal and found to have high cholesterol level.The person does a white color job,but daily exercise being done. Consumes Alcohol and smokes but rarely. The diet was brought to lowfat one and even then the pain or heaviness is not subsiding. Since the pain s around the chest especially in left region can it be any cardiac problem which can b associated with gastric disturbances? What are the possibilities? How to be managed? Is it necessary to go for a cardiologist opinion? Hereby attaching lipid profile report
