Do I have a overactive vagus nerve

I'm a 27 year old male. This is the problem.... I can't be out in the heat or in a real crowded area for more than 5 minutes.

I get real short of breath, pain from my stomach all the way up to my neck,and some heart palpatations. I also get alot of stomach gas. If I don't get into a cool area quickly I  feel that I will collapse. This has ruined my life I can't do normal things. I have had stress test done, echo, and a angiogram. All normal. I had a ablation for afib a few years back. I don't know if this is the right forum to ask this question but I really need some advice.  Also if I try exercising I get alot of stomach pains ...Could this be something with the vagus nerve?

Dysfunction of the vagus nerve typically involves changes in voice, repetitive coughing, and blood pressure changes. I am not aware of vagal dysfunction presenting with complaints similar to yours. Have you discussed this with your primary doctor or have you seen a gastroeneterologist to exclude stomach disorders. Good luck.

Sorry, looks like my comment ended up in the wrong subject.
Sounds like panic or anixety attacks.  That's what happens to me when I am in those situations.
