In brief: Angina.

A stress test should help in determining if chest pain is due to a blockage in an artery within the heart.

In brief: Yes

A stress test is designed to progressively increase the heart rate and cardiac workload in order to bring out signs and symptoms of obstructive coronary artery disease.
Substernal chest discomfort which comes on with physical or mental exertion, and is relieved by rest or Nitroglycerin defines angina.
