Anxiety: These symptoms are most compatible with chronic stress and anxiety with over awareness of heart beat and nonexertional chest distress. I recommend that you have a treadmill stress test and an outpatient heart monitor for 24-48 hours writing down the time and nature of symptoms. In this way you'll be able to rule out a cardiac cause of symptoms. Stress management therapy and reassurance will help.

May consider: A gastroenterologist evaluation. Upper GI Barium study, video swallowing and endoscopic are examples of text that may help establish the etiology of the symptoms
