As you have already done investigations like ECG and lipids , which are normal , you need not worry about seriousness of disease .
Besides this you can consider tests like stress test or TMT and Color doppler of heart which will confirm that the problem is mostly due to non cardiac ( other than Heart ) causes .
Stress and anxiety may also be one of the reason for this type of complaints .
At present you may not need any drugs , but stress and anxiety management will help you .
