if the tests you mentioned above were all normal then i agree with the doctor it could be just stress related and anxiety related,
you have already been prescribed medications to reduce the symptoms that you are feeling but on a small note you should be careful on the side effects of these drugs with the anti tbs you are on, you should be going regularly doing test on the liver to avoid its toxicity
i would also suggest you see a counseller to help in telling you ways in coping with your stress
hope have answered your query
get well soon and all the best. be strong.

General & Family Physician Dr. Olubusola Brimmo's  Response
You need to have an holter monitor, which is an electrocardiogram that is attached to you and monitors your heart over a few days, this will determine if there is an abnormal heart rhythm, which will ultimately determine if your heart will be normal. I also recommend you ask your doctor to start you on an anti-anxiety drug like fluoxetine
