I usually post on the Anxiety and Panic forum but I think for this little deal I should come here.
For quite a while now I wake up almost every morning with nausua and something that feels like it is moving around in my chest and abdominal areas..sometimes it hurts (an ache really) on the right hand side and sometimes I will have what I call the jump and bump on the left hand side sometimes I can feel acid/food/gas whatever pushing up into my throat. Of course with Anxiety having your chest hurt is a scary thing. My back hurts sometimes really bad. Sometimes I have a pain hit me in my left breast and it feels like it shoots out my back. I have had all kinds of heart test blood work, ekg's, Ultrasound of heart, Stress test with dye ect...all are normal. So I am wondering is this something that any of the rest of you experience? I am not sure if I should chalk it up to GERD or what? Gallbladder? Any ideas?

You should get yourself tested. You don't want to go through what I have been having. I had chest pain, had tests for my heart and ultrasound for gallstones and everything was okay. My cardiologist says I must have variant angina gives me pills and I have to figure out much to take. Next time I see her, still having problems gives me another kind of pills. The third time that airhead says I am all better.
Doing my own medical research I figured that I had this disease Gerd, but was not sure because I also would a have pain in left arm.I had a new family doctor, so I had to convince him to get tested, then waited three weeks for the test. It was on Oct 11, a week later I started having all this chest pain just like if was angina. I went to the hospital my EKG and blood work was okay, started getting heartburn while I was there. I realized that I must have GERD. The heartburn pain was so bad that I felt I was on fire, it lasted for days.
I have the symptoms as you, but then I started having breathing trouble,sinus pain, ear pain, feeling cold all of the sudden and a shaking feeling in my left chest.
I am a construction worker and had to stop working months ago because of this chest pain.
This disease has caused me to have anxiety problems now, for not knowing what was wrong with me and incompetent doctors.
Now I am getting better and hopefully be able to go back to work :-)
