Brief Answer:
Presence of normal tests indicates anxiety and stress

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for using Healthcaremagic.

I read your query and understand your concerns.

Although all of your thoughts have reasons but I feel there is more chance for anxiety as all tests are turned out negative.

It is my regular observation that many of the individuals with over concerns tend to develop multiple fears leading to more symptoms than any relief.

Considering the fact that you was prescribed sertraline I feel having anti anxiety medications must help you.
In addition I feel reducing stress is of prime importance for you and it is advisable to practice stress management.

I hope this helps you.
Feel free to write back to me if you have more questions.
Thanks and regards.
