Abnormal EKG. Stomach pain. Due to heart attack?

I am a 35 year old female, I had a regular physical exam yesterday. Had an EKG done and the Dr. told me it was abnormal. It appeared as though I had a Hear Attack. Now I have to go for a Echo. I did have stomach pain issues over the weekend. I thought it was bad gas, really uncomfortable feeling. Could that have been around the time it happened to me? I was told that it effects woman in the sign of indigestion.

young female without risk factor like diabetes , hypertension , abnormal cholesterol, any addiction , chances of heart problem is less likely
but once EKG showed abnormal result then 2D Echo required and if needed TMT also
there is harm or side effect in doing above test
heart problem can manifest with chest pain and various other way also like belching , shortness of breath , sweating , giddiness , chest uneasiness , burning in chest ,many times there will be no chest pain at all ( more common in diabetes )
take care
