I have been having chest pain and pressure. I have had 2 EKG's and a lung test done and they both came back fine. I have the oddest symptoms. When I eat something cold, it is almost like my heart is freezing like a brain freeze. Sometimes I get lightheaded, sometimes I am gassy, sometimes I am just tired, but I always have a weird feeling in my chest area. Is this anxiety disorder? Or is there something more?

You don't give your age, sex, habits, family history, weight, etc.
The symptom "I always have a weird feeling in my chest" is emotional in origin.
But you also state that you are having "chest pain and pressure" but don't state where and when these symptoms occur. I don't know the origin of these symptoms. Also, when you eat something cold the esophagus is affected, not the heart.
Please be aware that I am unable to diagnose medical conditions online.
