"Feelings" in the heart area

Hi, I have been experiencing these "feelings" in my heart and surrounding area including the top of my breast and over close to the armpit area. There is no pain, just a short "feeling", kinda like a tiny little poke every few minutes or so. It will even stop for a long time and then return. I went to see my doctor who checked me out and said it wasn't my heart. I do have panic disorder and know that chest pain is sometimes a symptom. I guess I'm just wondering if anyone out there has ever experienced this or had some answers for me. A part of me thinks it's anxiety related and another part thinks that I possibly pulled a muscle.....but what do you all think?? Thanks for listening. Kate
