At 23: Risk of non congenital, non viral cardiomyopathies is low. Hence negative predictive value of negative Echo, holter and stress test will be near 100%. simply put cardiac disease is unlikely.May f/u with detailed description of the pain(type,duration and aggravating and relieving factors) weightlifting or any strenous sports? then also Anxiety!
