Pain coming from the esophagus can feel like heart related pain, so I think one should first exclude a hiatus hernia or esophagitis due to acid reflux. Ask your GP to refer you for a gastroscopy to check for this. Severe inflammatory muscle spasm (fibrositis) in the neck and upper back can also cause referred chest and arm pain.
