Welcome to the gastroenterology communinty!  It sounds like you need to see your doctor about this.  Blood testing is incredibly easy.  If you have small or deep veins, try putting a hot pack in the inner crease of your elbow and make sure you have had plenty to drink.  The anxiety about having your blood drawn is worse than the actual poke.

Did you find out anything from the doctor?  I've been having most of the same symptoms.   Have had many heart and GI tests, also lung and gallbladder but all tests are normal.  I don't have reflux, or ulcers, or anything else for that matter.  I even had a gastric emptying study done because I still had food in my stomach after fasting for an upper GI endoscopy.  That test was normal too.  All the tests all show I'm in great shape, but am still having stomach and chest pains all the time.  Sounds like anxiety except I'm not feeling anxious. Or at least I wasn't until all the tests! :)   I have the feeling hot and starting to sweat part too, but I'm perimenopausal.  Because of that, I'm wondering if the other symptoms are because of hormones as well.
