Simply put, there is an area in the muscle between the chambers of your heart that would indicate that under stress does not get enough oxygen presumably due to a blockage. The good news is that it is reversible meaning it goes away with rest so the blockage could well be treated with meds, only your cardiologist can say for sure.
