How is mild left sided chest pain treated ?

hi my name is XXXXX, i am 20 years old healthy male. non smoker, non drinker, It all started with a disturbing pain on left side of my chest.i directly went to er , but in few minutes i started feeling well. It was not a strong pain but since it happened for the first time so i freaked out.Next day , docs conducted Echo test and Angiogrpaphy. Now reports of Angiography was absolutely normal And echo report was normal except for mild mr n tr and lveff=49% But i got really scared after the event,started feeling like a heart patients .This was due to lack of counselling on the part of doctors. The just told me it was due to gas or muscular pain nothing else. Anxiety i still experience same disturbing pain. Right under the left nipple , something moved,a bubble forms, pain the armpit as well,,,, n some times stretch upto my right chest, I started reading things on the internet, i felt irregular beats (i don knw if it is normal or not)... though i never feel like fainting or lightheadedness , now i don feel it any more I again went to a cardiologists, he conducted ecg , reports were normal only showed rbbb , to my surprise my Echo reports dis time were absoultely normal. no mr ,tr n lvef=75. am i really suffering from a heart problem or is it jus anxiety ,or muscular pain. I would also like to mention that my mind is always preoccupied with this anxiety. Y does my echo reports in both the case differ, first i was diagones with mild mr/tr second time no mr n tr.? Please help me.
