Evaluation: It sounds like it's time for a more thorough evaluation by a doctor with a stress test and re-evaluation of your blood pressure and cholesterol. Often cardiac symptoms do not produce abnormal ekg, x-ray or blood testing in the emergency room. You are of an age, with classic worrisome symptoms, that it's worth the time & effort.
