Brief Answer: Though young, symptoms arise suspicion of angina. Detailed Answer: Hello, Welcome to XXXXXXX Though you are young, your symptoms arise suspicion of angina.Chest pain that radiates to left arm with breathlessness surely needs evaluation for cardiac cause. Your anxiety might also be playing role in this. I generally get patients like you evaluated with EKG and if needed with stress test and 2Decho. So I recommend an early visit to cardiologist.Avoid any physical exertion.Have someone watch on you and take you to the hospital. Hope this helps.Please ask if there are doubts.Regards.

Brief Answer: I would like to get stress test in your case. Detailed Answer: All other investigations were done at rest , it would be wise to see if you get pain on exercise during stress test.Only after this it would be ideal to say that you dont have any cardiac issue. Regards.
