Chest pain, due to panic attacks, x-ray, ECG normal. Does X-ray show blockage?

I am 18 years old and have been showing up to the emergency room with chest pain but they said it was panic attacks. And the thing that scares me the most is having a heart attack , they did EKG s on me and chest xray and they said my heart is perfect. but my question is if with a chest xray can you see if there is plaque buildup in your arteries or not?

Hi, Eleuterio,
Thanks for query.
As your EKG is normal ,nothing to worry.
it seems that you are having cardio neurosis i.e. false fear of having heart attack.
There is no question of having plaque in your arteries.
To clear your doubt go for S.cholesterol and lipid profile.
Ok and bye.
