Brief Answer:
ECG was essentially normal.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Can you clarify what mild chest pain related to respiration mean - do you mean the pain increases as you breathe or you have breathing difficulty along with chest pain?

ECG appears essentially normal and as ECHO is also reported normal, it doesn't seem to be a serious heart concern. You need not be worried from heart point of view.

Nevertheless, you still haven't explained your symptoms clearly to me. We can have a fruitful conversation only when you present your clinical symptoms along with those reports.

I await for better details from your side.

Brief Answer:
Heart is not involved...

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Chest pain with breathing difficulty. However with the test results the possibility of heart involvement has been ruled out.

If you persist to have those complaints you should be evaluated further under a physician's care. In case you are asymptomatic, the symptoms may be from non cardiac source - GERD or Anxiety. I treat such patients with course of antiulcer drugs for couple of weeks. I would revise the treatment if symptoms recur.

Hope it makes sense. If all your questions are answered, please close this discussion.
