Need more info: What exactly where done for your evaluation within 3 weeks? As stated in earlier posts, cardiac cause is of concern, but if you've had negative blood work, stress test, ekg, xray, then perhaps it maybe something else causing your symptoms. Are your symptoms starting from your head/neck and radiate down to your chest/arm? Or are you having chest/arm pain and occasionally headache? ...Read more
