Hi antianxiety, I have virtually the exact same pains, and yes it is scary, particularly if you have an over active mind. It could be acid reflux, I also get a bubbly feeling too, did they give you anything for the acid reflux? I am not a medic, but the other thing it could possibly be is myofascial pain, where the tendons between the ribs become sore, it you press with your finger you could possibly find trigger points, that when pressed hurt. I think when you suffer from anxiety you hold yourself so tense that muscles etc. can become sore and spasm, try looking up myofascial pain and see if the symptoms are anything like yours.

I hope this is helpful, but If you start to feel worse please seek further medical help.

Take care.
