Hello and welcome to Just Answer. I am Dr K. I have over 25 years of clinical experience and look forward to answering your question. i may need more information from you, so I may ask for that. My goal is to provide a complete answer to your question and to be sure you are satisfied with that answer.

I am sorry that you are having this problem but will do my best to assist you and answer your questions.    It sounds like you have some severe health anxiety    Have you seen a mental health professional?

A 19 year old certainly does not need this many tests on the heart.

You could benefit from cognitive behavioral therapy to get over this issue and worry you seem to have.

This is not a medical issues.   Its a psychiatric problem that you should seek help for.

Thank you for trusting Just Answer with your question. Please let me know if you have additional concerns or need me to clarify something. I am happy to help.

you think I don’t have a heart problem then, the pain is scary

Theres no real way for me to think anything about that, this is an online question and answer service.  I would assume you do not as you have had so much testing.

From the reports and ecg

It looks like every test you had done is normal.  I would suggest getting psychiatric help.
