Heart is Fine: I am very surprised that any physician would put you through such extensive and expensive testing. It actually blows my mind. Your heart is fine.
Have you considered working with a personal trainer expert in weight lifting to see how you are lifting and what could be done differently to prevent or avoid too much pain with your workouts and post work out recovery.
