Sorry to frustrate: I know you're asking about cardiac conditions. I don't think it was a mistake to investigate - but it is a mistake to persist if there is a null result - especially at your age. Be reassured. Instead - consider a really skilled Health Psychologist who can teach you how to take your health seriously w/out anxiety and unneeded procedures. It can be the best way to feel better. Worth a try!
