Hi friend
Welcome to Health Care Magic

These symptoms could well be part of the anxiety - especially in the context of known anxiety and Irritable Bowel Syndrome, being already diagnosed, as stated in your history.

However it is better to have some investigations - Upper GI Endoscopy can rule out Oesophagitis, Gastritis, Hiatus Hernia + reflux and so on. ECG and X-ray chest are also generally necessary. If some thing is found, it is treatable with medicines. No need to worry.

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
