Sometimes when I breath in deeply, I get this weird ballooning sensation in my lower throat or even chest area. Should I be concerned?

In brief: Possibly GERD
Acid reflux can present in many different ways, including feeling of a lump (globus sensation) in the throat, or when your stomach acid is entering your airway, it can produce effects like ballooning sensation in the lower throat and chest.
