Does Stress Test and heart ultrasound detect this disease ANGINA ?

Does Stress Test and heart ultrasound detect this disease ? I had a few EKG tests, along w/ a heart ultrasound and stress test. However, all the test results are negative. I ve been having this weird chest pain for quite sometime now, I also have a lot of pains right under arm. The pain is off and on, and the severity varies. I feel so helpless because I think my doctor thinks I m just crazy and making up all this stuff. She even prescibe me some anti-depressant. I m not even close to being depress. I m just wondering if what causing my pain is actually hard to detect. One doctor even told me that I m too young for any type of disease. I m 32 years old, height is 5 6, and my weight is 121 lbs. Please I need some help/advise.

It might be time to seek a second opinion. Interestingly enough women suffer death from their first heart attacks more regularly than men and the reason is that it is not their first heart attack. If you are having idiopathic (cause unknown) chest pain and someone prescribes you antibiotics would you seek a second opinion? Sure you would because that wouldn't make any sense either. If the chest pain arises during stress or physical exertion and goes away upon rest this is called stable angina and is indicative of the heart not receiving enough oxygen in times of high energy demand. The word stable should not indicate to you some form of safety. If the chest pain strikes as you are just sitting there and getting up and moving relieves the pain this is called prinzmetals angina either condition should be looked at right away. A few things to consider: No one is ever too young to suffer from heart disease. Do you have family history? What is your cholesterol? Do you have hypertension? Do you smoke? Are you on birth control and smoke? All of these are good determinants of absolute cardiac risk and should be discussed (or tested for) on your next doctor visit. Hope that helps.
