Thanks for your question on Healthcare Magic.
I can understand your concern.
Since all your investigations are normal, no need to worry for heart diseases.
Shortness of breath in young age (21 years) can be due to asthma. And for the diagnosis of asthma, you need to get done PFT (pulmonary function test). You have not done PFT yes.
So in my opinion, you should first get done PFT.
If PFT is normal then no need to worry for asthma.
Stress and anxiety can also cause shortness of breath with burping.
So consult psychiatrist and get done counselling sessions.
Try to identify stressor in your life and start working on it's solution.
You may need anxiolytic drugs too.
Don't worry, with counselling and drugs, you will be alright.
Hope I have solved your query. I will be happy to help you further. Wish you good health. Thanks.
