Few things here - he has a history of heartburn aka reflux. Back on the pills or get a dosage adjustment. Reflux can be triggered by stress.
Anxiety attack? It can manifest in many different ways for different people. Chest pain, rapid breathing, reflux issues, irritable bowel syndrome, physical pain, confusion and disorientation, odd statements, a seemingly hypochondriac type personality, obsessiveness...list goes on.
Walking pneumonia? Rib tip syndrome is another possibility (I have experienced rib dislocation over the holidays and RTS is very similar to a dislocated rib at the xaphoid process area or sternum area except it's recurring rather than a dislocation).
Does he complain of a radiating pain that runs down the left arm, shoulder or side? How's his coherency? Does he speak without slurring, is his balance okay? No muscle drooping? shortness of breath? rapid breathing? These are all signs of either heart attack or stroke.
Does he drink a lot of coffee or other caffeinated beverages. My DH went caffeine free at age 30 when he started getting chest pains all the time. He went through 2 weeks of wicked headache withdrawals, and has been caffeine free ever since (he's 41 now). Just a thought.
Reflux is often a sign of food intolerances (as is IBS).

and expecting 1/13!!!!
We don't spend our mornings together, but I think he drinks one or two large coffees every morning and that is it for the day. Occassionally one at night if we are out and driving by his favorite coffee shop. Pop only once a month or so. Beer once or twice a week (not caffeine obviously, but can't be good for his stomach/acid levels).
I would denfinately have him do a sleep study. My husband has sleep apnea and if left untreated it can cause some serious problems. Also, you're both probably not getting a good nights rest, I couldn't even sleep in the same bedroom with my hubby our first 2 years of marriage, after he got a cpap machine I could sleep next to him without wanting to kick him
