Chest Tension and Tightness

Is constant chest tightness and tension a symptom of anxiety?

I have also been clearing my throat constantly and having some chest congestion with dry cough mainly after eating.

Can anyone tell me if these symptoms are related?

Chest tightness and tension can definitely be symptoms of anxiety and as long as there is no pain associated with them, not much to worry about. If it is constant I would bring it to the attention of my doctor. You say you're also experiencing chest congestion and a dry cough and those are NOT symptoms of anxiety and I would strongly suggest you see your doctor about that.
