Maybe neither: Might consider possibility of peripheral nerve compression afflicting your arm at wrist or elbow. An EMG test can help rule out this consideration. Am skeptical that anxiety is cause of tingling in one arm.

Unlikely: CAD which is less common in the 20'S and with normal stress test and ECHO
