Tough to say: As described, I would assure you have no heart issues first and foremost, and if your ekg is normal, then you may need a follow-up stress test for more information. Anxiety is not always so "cut and dry" so there still may be that possibility too. Keep following up with your dr. until you get an answer. Best wishes.
