chest pain, difficulty in swallowing and dry cough signifies laryngopharyngeal  reflux disorder or gastroesophageal  reflux disorder where gastric acid spills back into food pipe and throat causing pain and cough. you can consult a gastroenterologist  or ENT specialist for complete evaluation of upper digestive tract and treatment
