yes to acid reflux and anxiety... but how do you explain the rest of the symptoms I stated above?

tension and anxiety can cause you to tense up your shoulders and neck and cause pain between your neck and shoulders

a muscle strain or pinched nerve in your neck can cause pain there as well.

anxiety or acid reflux can cause pain in the collar bone and throat area.

have you tried medications like prilosec and zantac and prevacid to help decrease stomach acid?
