Hi XXXXXXX,
Welcome to XXXXXXX forum.

There appears to be least possibility of ischemic heart disease (IHD) because of normal coronary angiography.
Although you have positive stress test but normal angiography rules out possibility of IHD.
Considering symptomatology, there appears to be possibilities of prinzmetal's angina (occasional spasm of coronary arteries), muscle ache and pain attacks.

You should consult with XXXXXXX medicine specialist/ cardiologist and should go for thorough check up.
With normal endoscopy, possibility of gastrointestinal pathology also appears to be least.
As you have positive family history, you should take antiplatelets (clopidrogrel/ prasugrel & aspirin).
You should take low dosage of beta blockers, if systolic blood pressure is > 110 mm Hg.

You should also consult with psychiatrist for generalized anxiety disorders & panic attacks.
You should also take selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs).
Hope that helps.
Let me know if I can address any more concerns.
Take care,
Dr. Mayank Bhargava

For the past few days I have had heart palpatations, sore arm, chest pain, and pains in my legs alongside numbness in my arm. Is this just an anxiety attack? I had a hemotoma in my leg and was petrified they were linked, but each time I showed the doctors they didn't seem to think this was a possibility. I just need reassurance that it is only anxiety.

This began about 5 mos ago, have been called by the school re this condition, has been evaluated by Dr., nothing physical. Son-in-law quit his job and they moved into a lovely new home about six mos ago. Could this be anxiety attacks?
