Thank you for the query.

This really sounds like heart ischemia, and such symptoms should not be neglected. Chest pain or upper abdominal pain, radiating to the left arm or jaw, shortness of breath, anxiety feeling, nausea are typical heart problem symptoms.

That is why I kindly ask you to visit ER and have heart ECG and heart enzymes performed.

It is also possible that your symptoms are due to acid reflux disease, however heart problems should be ruled out at first.

Hope this will help. Feel free to ask further questions.
