Muscle Tightening in chest & back

I have been having definate muscular tightening in the left side of my upper body; from my spine around to my breast bone.  Sometimes I feel it in my left arm also.  I've been throught the stress test in the ER two times in the last year and all is fine with my heart I am told.  I have had anxiety issues over the past 2 years.  I weaned off Lexapro in July and am now weaning off Xanex.  I take  1/2 mg to .25 mg daily.  I started out 2 years agon on 1/2 mg 3 x daily and have been able to get to this point.
Also my feet get hot, red and have a burning feeling, my hands feel this way too just no where as often.  

Could any of this be anxiety related?  I don't feel anxious at all.  Any help is appreciated.

Thanks,
Carbaholic
