When you see your doctor TODAY he or she will help you find out.
The most likely cause is GORD (gastro-esophageal-reflux-disease). It is thought to be caused by a lax sphincter muscle at the bottom of the swallowing tube, where it joins to …the stomach. Also you may have an ulcer in the esophagus or a change in the tube called Barret's Disease.
If you are purging, the strain of vomiting could be the cause.

Clogging of arteries possibly but I would take some Mucinex if you are coughing and if it still does not stop then go to a doctor.

If I were having chest pain bad enough for me to want to see a doctor, I wouldn't waste time trying to choose the right doctor. I would chew and swallow one regular (325mg…) aspirin and call 911 immediately . Chew the aspirin for faster absorption; if you are having a heart attack you don't want to wait for any enteric coating to dissolve in your stomach. Aspirin is known to reduce the risk of heart attack, but it is also a good intervention during an attack, assuming that you are not taking anything with which the aspirin will adversely interact.

It's considered a panic or anxiety attack. But you should go to the doctor and tell them your having them. There is medicine out there that helps for that.
