Welcome. I am sure you do have anxiety as you sx are scary.
Have you ever talked with your physician about heartburn or GERD. We have a GERD forum..............you may want to take a read through it. I am not a professional but some of your sx could be caused by other disorders.

Hello and I am so glad you have joined us. I believe you may be right, youhave had this going on since July and you anticipate that it may happen again.
AS long as all your tests turned out well, I would trust your physician on being thorough.
Certainly return to the ER if the problem returns.
Welcome to HW, anxiety can give you so many symptoms, from heart palps to stomach issues/shaking/nausea. It is one tricky disorder. If you have been checked over thoroughly by health professionals and they say you are fine maybe you need to find a way of reducing your anxiety and hopefully the chest pains will lessen or go away.
You don't want to take meds, but have you tried counselling or CBT therapy? They can help with reducing the thoughts around your anxiety so you can recognise and deal with it better. Again, welcome to HW, it's lovely to have you here.
Welcome to you as well! You are not alone in this okay? Many of us have been where you are, and I applaud you for your positive attitude. If you take care of yourself physically then your mind will be a lot more settled.
Have you tried any counselling or therapy around your anxiety? It may help you with job interviews and life in general. Thanks for sharing your story, I look forward to getting to know you better.
Hey there, Just checking up on you. I do not have any suggestions for your chest pain other then see you physician again if they continue.
From what I understand cardiac jaw pain is equal on both sides of the face and increased when the patient made some kind of physical exertion.
Remember that is just a comment and I am not a profesional.........so do follow up with your physician or dentist.
You are doing well in trying to identify what triggers your anxiety. You may want to keep a journal and document what you were doing when the anxiety strikes.
Keep on taking those babysteps.
