Hi Dear !! Thanks for your query to HCM.
Read and Reviewed your query in context to your health issues.
In the given scenario and history facts,You seem to suffer from-GERD induced Esophagitis-causing chest pain.
This is so because lungs and heart are without any evidence on investigations.
Chest bone near neck pains with burning.
This is from the high acid contents from upper stomach regurgitating in to neck/ throat, causing chest burning with ? angina like pains, in your case.
Also other causes of recurrent chest burning behind chest bone needs to be ruled by consults with Ent/ Physician/ Surgeon.

Plan Suggested for your treatment-
GERD causes need to be ruled out- with Consults from Ent Surgeon / Physician / Surgeon by appropriated tests with these doctors.
EKG andholtzers nuclear stress testing would fix and rule out heart ailment involved in your chest pain.
Anti-Acidity drugs-PPI with LES(lower esophageal Sphincter) regulator-like Domperidone would fix the chest pain behind neck.
Liqu.Gaviscon-Alginic Acid-gel- 1 gm x 4 times a day x 2 weeks would control this chest pain-from esophagitis.

So treating these causes is needed with proper drugs after proper tests, which would need Consults with team of doctors as -Cardiologist/ / ENT /GI specialist.

Other cause of , need to be ruled out, by examination with team of ENT/Cardiologist doctors/ Physician/Surgeon Doctor and others if need be.

Hope this reply would help you to resolve the health issues with help of doctors attending on you.
