The entire description there is nothing to suggest any major issue. Everything can possibly be explained by anxiety itself. But howevero as dictum we would like to rule out organic cause before calling something as anxiety or psychosomatic. If symptoms are recurrent and troublesome it is reasonable to have echocardiogram and tmt. Even if everything comes normal you may get benefitted by the treatment with small dose of bet blockers.
