Yes, after going to ER twice thinking it was cardiac (my father had back pain that turned out to be cardiac), I had a cardiac work-up, plus ortho, and gastro.

I know this is an older topic, but I have experienced a lot of these symptoms. Doctors are also stumped. I don't get pain down the arm, but I do get pain in and around the left shoulder blade after eating, mostly grains, high fiber food. I don't have reflux or GERD either. I do get esophageal spasms while eating cottage cheese and yogurt, but not any other cold foods or drinks. The only physician who has come up with anything is the ER doc who sent me for an MRI of my thoracic spine, which showed herniated thoracic discs touching the cord.
I also get migraine flare-ups and the doctor said the same HNPs could be causing referred pain that is triggering the migraines because quite often there is the same shoulder pain associated with migraine.
