It can be produced my many things, but if the angina it is produced when you make an effort, chances are that you have a problem with your coronaries arteries (some of them might be blocked and the heart does not receive blood enough).

Please see a cardiologist for proper evaluation.

Angina has many causes. It can be blocked coronary arteries or spasms of those arteries. Either way the pain is caused from a lack of blood flow to the heart muscle. The shortness of breath is a sign that you are needing more oxygen for your heart. If you are having chest pain you should seek medical help by calling 911.
