Anxiety: What you describe can be very stressful and if you have been checked out with ECG and tests then the probable cause is an anxiety reaction or panic attacks. Try to see doctor about anxiety attacks to get help. Decrease alcohol an cigarettes. Try meditation (google it to learn how). Try to reduce stress in your life. If you have religeous beliefs then pray for healing. Healing groups are good.

Maybe: Sometimes, if it is bad enough, gerd can cause chest pain. Sounds more like anxiety however, which can also make gerd worse. At age 26, it is very unlikely to be something life threatening. If you don;t already have one, consider seeing a primary care provider for a more complete evaluation. Hope this helps!
