Mild Intermittent Chest Discomfort at Rest

I've experienced occasional, very mild chest discomfort (I definitely would not say pain, just a sort of an uncomfortable 'sensation') on an intermittent basis. Like an unexplained soreness or weakness in the chest area (like being weak in the knees). It manifests itself just a little differently each time, and lasts only a few minutes. The interesting thing is that it always occurs when I'm at rest -- either have been sleeping and am awakened, or just sitting on the computer at work, or whatever.

I am 28yrs old, 5'10", unfortunately very overweight (hence my concern) -- about 310. My BP has tended to run just a bit high since I was 26 but nothing extreme.

I wouldn't say I've experienced shortness of breath or labored breathing, but when it comes on I start to feel concerned which would probably explain a strange feeling of being *acutely conscious* of my breathing, if that makes any sense.

The dr suggested I may be having anxiety or panic attacks but I don't think that would cause the actual feeling of chest discomfort.. would it? I would really like to know what is going on!
