Anxiety: they are much more effective than an Internet site telling you that you do not have heart disease. It would benefit you to see you personal physician if you have not done so. Come up with a plan of treatment for this anxiety and give it a therapeutic trail. In other words, try treatment and see if it works. There may also be some further testing to do to ally your concerns. Good luck.

Heart: These test should be sufficient but if you continue to have chest pain then a stress EKG may be in order
