The tight throat, and burping may be GERD (acid reflux), and can even cause pain in the chest.  But with your mentioning of feeling really stressed out combined with the panic attack, I think it's anxiety.  But never disregard chest pains, get that checked out and then get help for the anxiety.  I take meds for mine, and don't know what I'd do without them. Take care.....
