Heart failure: Heart failure in a young male is uncommon, and you need to have a cardiology evaluation. Ecg and blood test do not have to be abnormal to confirm heart failure. The echocardiogram (ultrasound) of your heart is helpful to determine the degree of damage. In young people, the cause is usually not from bad arteries, but from congenital causes, infectious myocarditis, or valve damage. See cardiologist!

Do more exams: It sounds that you are suffering from angina. Your doctor must investigate levels of cholesterol and other heart test. Watch your diet and stress on the mean time.
