Pulsation and pain behind sternum, back pain, discomfort in esophagus. Had C-sections. Psychosomatic disorder?

Hi, i have pulsation and mild pain behind sternum, together with this I am yawning and it feels like i cant inhale normally. I also have back pain and feeling of something in my esophagus near stomach . I want to mention , that this symptoms are not related with taking food or physical activity. 1 year ago I made total resection of thyroid gland . Sometimes I have something like panic attacks and while inhaling- feels like ants in the fingers. I also had 3 ceaser sections during last three years and problems after spinal anesthesia- neuropathy. I laso want to mention, that I dont have problems with heart and I have osteochondrosis Can you tell me is this psychosomatic disorder or something more concrete? thank you

your mild pain behind the sternum and back pain as well as feeling somethinf stuck in the esophagus can very well be due to some tumor or lymphnodes around the trachea and esophagus. What you should ideally do to rule out such a thing is by doing a HRCT chest with contrast.
If there is nothing then u can probabaly take it as psychosomatic
