    Karen anxiety can give you all kinds of symptoms. Go back to your Dr or call and see if you can get a echocardiogram. This is like a Sonogram of your heart. I just had this done! It does not take long and it can be very reassuring. But really if your ekg was normal, I doubt wry much that you have a problem with your heart. Just read other people's post on here and you will see , we can have every symptom in the book! The mind is very powerful and it believes what you tell it. You have to be active in your own care. Educate yourself on this disorder. This place is a good start! So many of us!! ((Hugs)) your not alone!

    This sounds like stress and anxiety, depending how long it has ben since your test you need to trust those who have taken the tests. 

    Whatever we say to you here you will want a repeat of the test and I would consider you talk to your Doctor again.

    If you are anticipating a problem you will feel that problem you seek and you are in a negative situation where you will believe you have a serious problem.

    It is difficult to square a circle here. 

    Relaxation Techniques and Breathing techniques should help you. Talk to your GP and ask for Relaxation Tapes for you to follow.

    Get well soon
