anxiety or heart problem?

hello can anyone offer advice.... last week id experienced intense tightness in my chest for about 8 hours with a pounding heart a weird sensation up my throat and a harsh breathing feeling.the odd chest cramp(like a twisting of muscle between someones finger and thumb in the centre of my chest) that made my arms feel weak for a split second.i eventually went to the emergency centre had my bloods checked, blood pressure taken,refused an x ray and had a test with numerous pads over my limbs and chest for a minute.the medic told me the results were normal and he thought it was heart burn and not my heart.i went along with that as im still relatively young(28) and put the chest pain down to stress/ anxiety.as im under pressure lately

now a week later.the chest tightness has gone along with most of the chest pain apart from the odd pang under my right breast. but now ive got some weird kicking feeling somewhere in my back that appears every few minutes it dont feel like my heart its self but who knows.im getting miniature versions of these kicks down my arms and in my legs,you can actually see my skin jumping/twitching.along with a occasional dull ache down my legs or arms.am i worrying over nothing?i dont feel ill or nuasea. i should also add that ive got a track record of ending gym sessions early after nearly fainting and the last time i worked out i actually did faint.anyone advise me?
