Hi friend
Welcome to Health Care Magic

Obviously heart has been ruled out as a cause for the problem.
The other thing to look will be the Chest (muscle spasm) and spine - neck (cervical spondylosis).
If there are no clues still, anxiety is likely.

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck

welcome to health care magic

As per your description, you might have these symptoms due to underlying "anxiety disorder" i.e. somatic (bodily) symptoms of anxiety. Don't worry and relax yourself with yoga, meditation or deep breathing. Consult a psychiatrist for detailed evaluation.
Good Luck
