In brief: Worrisome info

For a kid with hypertension in this age group, identification of the cause and proper management are important.
Pain in the left chest at this age can be from many unrelated sources (gi, chest wall, lung) but occasionally are heart related.A historical review, physical and some testing could begin the management process. Without data, you are traveling in an unknown zone.
