What causes both back and chest pain?

I have been having some back and chest pains for about 2 weeks. I have an echocardiogram, stress test, egg and an angiogram. The stress test and ekg were abnormal but when they did the angiogram, there were no blockages. The echo was ok as well. should i be concerned?

Thanks for posting at HCM.
ECG,2 d echo and treadmill tests are non invasive tests which can be false positive. An angiography is a invasive test which directly visualises the arteries of the heart. it is a very sensitive test for heart blockages. Since there are no blockages on angiography, there is nothing to worry about.
ECG and stress test will remain abnormal in your case always.
Wishing you good health.
