Thank you for your query. I can understand your concerns.
Atypical chest pain (stabbing chest pain/needles like pain coming-going) is more common in people with mitral valve prolapse.
Many patients of mitral valve prolapse have chest pain , often substernal, prolonged, and not related to exertion, but may rarely resemble angina pectoris.
Gallbladder disease particularly cholelithiasis may be associated with GERD,giving rise to burning sensation across chest . In case of recurrent chest pain ,you may undergo evaluation like ECG,Stress test, to rule out concomitant coronary artery disease.
