Go see a doctor: It could be a lot of things either benign, or life-threatening. So you will need to get evaluated. It could for example range from anxiety attacks, to heart burn, to blood clots in the lung, to vascular problems like aneurysms of the aorta, or aortic dissection. So as you can see there are various serious issues that could cause similar symptoms even with normal ecg. Get yourself checked out.
