What causes this back pain ?

my sister who is 30 went to the doctor yesterday over back pain her blood pressure was high 143/97 and her pulse was 143 so the doctor administered an ekg which showed she had a heart attack he then sent her to a cardiologist his ekg machine said the same so he then administered a stress test and sonogram her heart he gave her the all clear that she had in fact not had a heart attack. and told her to check up with her regular doctor today and test for an infection that may be causing the fast pulse rate and blood pressure im just wondering what can cause the ekg to say she had a heart attack when she didn't and what do you think is causing the blood pressure and fast pulse rate thanks.

If her heart was beating irregularly or too fast so they could not rule out heart attack but the sonogram might have showed no damage to her heart which means they could rule out heart attack. Her fast pulse and blood pressure could be an infection like how they said. usually during infection your body rises in temperature to combat it. When your body rises in temperature your heart rate and blood pressure go up.
