Brief Answer:
several possible causes

Detailed Answer:
It may be related to thyroid hormonal imbalance but other hormones shouldn't have some effect. So you should do thyroid ultrasound for start.
Also, it may be caused by esophageal spasms due to esophagitis,gastritis,gerd. In this case symptom would be aggravated by smoking,alcohol,coffee and stress and if it persists you should do gastroscopy. Wish you good health.Regards
