Intermittent mild chest pain with arm and jaw pain. EKG, BP normal. Alarming?

I have been having little chest pain past week or so. Comes and goes. Then my right side including my arm and jaw have some pain in it. My doctor did an EKG and it was normal as well as my blood pressure. He is doing a chest xray , echo, and stress test on Wednesday just to be sure but he says I shouldn t worry. I am 32 overweight so I tend to worry allot. If the EKG is normal should I worry

Thanks for query.
Many a time EKG may be normal even then some problem in the heart is there as at the time of taking EKG blood circulation in the heart is normal and show normal EKG.
But to rule out coronary insufficiency or other problem in the heart Echo and stress test will confirm.
Ok and bye.
