Im having some trouble swallowing and have sever pressure in my upper chest and neck. It feels like Someone is strangling me. And when I suck air through my nose I feel lots of pressure in my upper chest where my collarbone and throat meet. Im feeling like im not getting enough oxygen.

No, you would need an upper endoscopy done. I work at a GI practice and this is how they diagnose.

Pretty sure you have to have an endoscope to diagnosis it.
