Thanks for writing in.
Indigestion can lead to a lot of chest pain. Also, anxiety can cause an increase in the heart rate. If you are young, generally have a healthy lifestyle, don't smoke, and don't have a family history of heart disease; I would suggest you sit back and relax.
Even in the ER, they would simply run an EKG which would be normal in all probability. I would suggest that you try deep breathing exercises and yoga for getting rid of anxiety. This would really help you a lot.
Hope this helps.

Anxiety is a state of mind and it certainly cannot give you any physical problems unless you have already any. You will need treatment specifically for anxiety disorders. Chest congestion may be due to anxiety induced acidity.
