Welcome to HealthcareMagic Public Forum

If your tests are abnormal, then your treatment depend on finding of test reports. If cardiac sarcoma is suspected, then there should be some finding on 2D echo.

Apart from that, there is need to rule out anxiety disorder in your case, specially considering: Difficulty in reaching diagnosis in spite of several tests, palpitation and history of narcotic addiction.

I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
Wish you Good Health.
