Then you should consider therapy. You should consult a psychotherapist who is experienced in cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) and Acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT). These forms of therapy have been shown to be extremely beneficial for treatment of anxiety, and the result of successful treatment with CBT and ACT is similar to medication.

Most patients taking this medication do not have any major side effects and continue to take the medication with good results. However some individuals do experience side effect. Most of the times these are minor side effects such as nausea or constipation, which will reduce on continued intake of medication.
So, you should not be afraid of the side effects, and think about the beneficial effect of the medication.

You should wean from Klonopin gradually. These adverse effects are reversible and you should not worry about them.
Please continue taking it. After a few days you will start to feel better and your anxiety will reduce.

Yes, it is possible for anxiety to cause such a feeling. However if this is painful and burning type of sensation, then it is likely due to reflux of acid into the esophagus (heartburn). If this is due to heartburn your symptoms will reduce when you take medications such as Pepcid or Prilosec.
