Why do I get heavy heart palpitations and heart burn when the EKG reports are normal ?

If this is not my heart, then what else could it be? Hi. I am a 26 year old female. I gave birth to a still born about 8 months ago and since then I have had heart palpitations, heavy breathing, my chest feels like bad heartburn and I get really bad headaches while all of this is going on. When this first starting happening I went to my primary care doctor, she did an EKG and said it was abnormal and sent me directly to the emergency room. I went directly there, they ran two additional EKG s on me and told me there was nothing wrong and it looked normal to them. They even saw the initial EKG ran by the doctor I went to see earlier that day. The hospital released me and said I was fine. A couple of months later I went to see a cardiologist and he did another EKG on me which he said was normal to him as well. I also told him that one of my doctor s previously advised me that I have a slight heart murmur. The cardiologist told me that he didn t notice anything. I am confused. My chest feels horrible, my back hearts, my neck hurts and my arms have weird feelings. If this is NOT my heart, then what else could it possibly be? I also need to add that I have a history of anemia , back and forth. I last had it checked about 3 months ago and I my hemoglobin level was great. However, it has been known to change back and forth since my baby s death.

Pediatrician Dr. Suryakanta Baraha's  Response
its seems to be Functional murmurs (also called physiologic murmurs) can occur in the absence of valvular is caused by a high cardiac output state like anemia , hyperthyroidism, may also have palpitations and breathlessness due to 1st find out the type of anemia you have by doing simple peripheral smear.and then take medications by consulting adoctor. also do other tests like thyroid status of your body.if all things come normal then it may be due to anxiety also.
take care
