When patients have these symptoms and all heart tests come back normal and there seems to be no other physical explanation for the discomfort, we often then consider anxiety to be a cause of these symptoms. These are very common symptoms for anxiety sufferers. I would recommend a discussion with your primary doctor about this and consider meditation, mindfulness, and deep breathing to try.
