Anxiety: There are several reasons for non cardiac chest pain including muscle skeletal pain , esophageal spam, and anxiety. At your age, having heart disease is very unlikely but if you have strong familiy history of heart disease and you want to be 100% sure, you could have a cardiac CT.

In a south Asian male @ 35 years, CAD is imperative that it being considered and thoroughly investigated, before entertaining non cardiac diagnosis,. Atherosclerosis begins as early as 10 yrs old. I do not recommend CTA if stress test normal and lipids "good".
