Cardiologist 's  Response
from your TMT finding its positive for inducible ischemia it means that most probably your heart is not getting proper blood supply when demand increase as by exercise it mostly due to narrowing of arteries which supply blood to heart mostly due to blockage or may be due to some inflammation,
as in young female and no risk factor like normal rest BP and normal lipids mostly its related to inflammation related narrowing of artery
i advice to consult cardiologist and go for angiogram test and further treatment will be based on angiogram test
no need to panic but dont delay also
take care
