Does stress cause dizziness and pain in the shoulder and chest ?

I was driving and got dizzy. Then I got back pain just under my shoulder blades that reached around to the sides of my chest . I am female 57 years old with no known health problems and was wondering if this could be due to stress?

There is possibility of having Cervical spondilitis causing pain in shoulder blades and side of chest andfeeling of dizziness.

Recently in the past couple months I ve had extreme anxiety. I had chest pain at first and was convinced I had heart disease and went to the doctor and he said I was fine. About a week later the pain went away. But now whenever I get stressed out I get a headache that feels very pressurizing on my eyes and I get dizzy and feel like I m falling. Any idea if my anxiety has anything to do with it? I ve also had a swollen lymph node on the left side of my neck for about a month and a half, doctor said don t worry. Ideas?
