Actually, I get the same thing, but do not have the anxiety.  My doctor thinks it may be some kind of indigestion.  The downside, and this was not stated, was how long were the episodes.  Mine can last from a few minutes to hours, 5 or 6 or more.  After that I notice my body vibrating.  Most times I'm so tired that as soon as they let up, I sleep. So I'm not sure if the length of time is a factor or not
