GI problem seem cause my sore throat, throat clearing, feeling of lump in throat, difficulty breathing & swallow. Can it cause severe chest pain too?

If in doubt, go to ER or an urgent care, if this is unlike anything you've experienced before and is accompanied by shortness of breath, cardiac issues need to be checked for and ruled out. ...Read more

This could be a so-called "web" or an infection or growth, or something else. An endoscopy should be performed.
