In brief: Angina

If you have chest pain and shoulder pain whenever you experience stress or anxiety, it could be vasospastic angina.
It may not show up in regular stress test. It need special tests. Consult your physician.

In brief: No

Tests can help but are not perfect.
Especially for a women of your age. You should speak with your doctor about your symptoms and testing. Your problem should be sorted out with someone experienced in dealing with chest pain and heart disease.
