Brief Answer:
Looks like anxiety only

Detailed Answer:
If you don't have long standing illness and all the tests you have mentioned are normal than your symptoms must be related to anxiety. But one small possibility of Asthma should be kept in mind. If that is also ruled out than only anxiety can explain and need to meet a therapist and undergo counseling.
