Yes, it is possible.: You are 22 years old and if there is no significant heart disease in your family and with the normal physical exam and lab findings heart and gallbladder problems ruled out , it means that heart is ok, your gb is ok. Yes, you need more investigations related your gi tract. Stress and anxiety type thing could be the cause. I would go for another esophagus exam.
