Tough: The options are so big, hard to answer. Perhaps the symptos are not cardiac but a combination of anxiety and cardiac working together? How's sleep? Try prilosec, won't hurt, see if reflux contributing. Is dizziness related to blood pressure? Are you tall, linky, see marfans' syndrome. Did u mean tee for the next test? It's complex but treating reflux, anxiety and mood during workup may help.
