Thanks for your query.

I see there is no need to worry as the problem you have do not make me suspicious about any serious heart illness in you.Also your ECG is normal on multiple occasions that rules out heart diseases almost completely.

The symptom you mention could also be due to gastritis caused due to acid peptic disease .Stress and unhealthy food habits will trigger such problems .The timing of the symptoms is also typical to the acid peptic disease. Hence I suggest you to take Tab Prilosec one in the morning before food for 1 week and observe .If there is any decrease in the itchy or pain sensation in the chest, it confirms that it is due to gastritis.

Do avoid spicy foods meanwhile and consume soft and vegetarian food for some days from now.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
