Vague symptom: The description of ur symptoms is vague. Is there pain? Regurgitation / coughing? Trouble breathing? Given just ur description & ur age (36) the odds r greatly in ur favor that this is NOT related to ur heart. The testing was overkill & (of course) negative. TTYD about other possibilities, maybe biofeedback to get a handle on the symptom. Keep a journal of when it happens; it cd help point 2 cause
