Not anxiety?: Anxiety & panic attacks frequently cause shortness of breath, as well as many other physical symptoms. I'm glad you have such good results from your heart and lung evaluations so far. I don't know what your doctors will come to, about your situation -- but here's info about panic attacks: http://www.Mayoclinic.Com/health/panic-attacks/ds00338/dsection=symptoms.

Tests : That's a lot of testing for a low probability of angina from the start. Musculoskeletal and other possibilities should be considered.
