1 doctor agrees

In brief: Yes

It certainly can be.
Chest pain that is exertional in nature should be investigated by a stress test and if there is some suspicion or an abnormal ekg, possibly an imaging stress test. Several imaging tests will show the possibility of microvascular insufficiency of the heart (nuclear stress testing, pet, and mri).
