I get that heart somersault thing too. It happens often when I sitting, not stressed, and all of a sudden it flips and feels like it's going to jump out of my chest. It's very startling, but I've had it checked out and the doctor said it's anxiety. You can get anxiety attacks even when you're not feeling stressed. Heart palpatations are caused by stimulants like sugar, caffeine, alcohol and stress, and are not usually a symptom of serious heart disease. I completely stay off of caffeine, and my heart doesn't do it as often. Effexor has also helped me. I get chest pain too, but it's always localized to one specific area. It's muscle pain, because I can feel myself tense up. My doctor told me if you could pin point exactly where the chest pain is, it's muscle. If you have chest pain from heart disease, you can't pin point it, it's just pain all over your chest. Also, when you're anxious and depressed, you tend to hunch over alot, which can cause your chest and back muscles to weaken and tense up, which can cause pain. Muscles around the ribs are very tender, and if these are inflamed the pain is very sharp. If you're anxious about chest pain too, it will increase. I would be concerned if you had sudden pain in your jaw or back that you don't normally get, that could be a symptom of heart disease. It's good you're going to your doctor for that test to rule anything out. This has only been my experience.
