Calcium score: It would be extremely unlikely that you have coronary artery disease after your extensive work up. Consider getting a calcium score which is a quick noninvasive cat scan of the heart area looking for calcium plaques. Having a low score is extremely predictive of not having a coronary event in the next five years.

Tests: You've had more than enough testing. If you're concerned about your heart disease future. Use a mediterranean or vegetarian diet and get regular daily aerobic and some weight exercise. Keep your high BP controlled to normal and be sure your blood sugar and lipids are controlled. You're fine now doing those things will help keep it that way.
