Hello I'm confused

my story so far...I have had a lot of tight chest pain and breathlessness with pain in my jaw and left arm which I put down to my Copd but In April I was woke with severe chest pains and pain in jaw and down my left arm this lasted over 15 mins next day I went to see my GP who did a ecg that was normal. He thought I might have Angina and as my my Dad had his first heart attack at 52 and had arteriosclerosis and died age 62 with a third heart attack also my 44 year old brother has had 2 heart attacks and has arteriosclerosis so there is a family history of heart disease. Had a positive Dobutamine Stress test. On Friday had a Angiography and was given the all clear normal coronary arteries on my cath report the diagnosis was Minor Coronary Disease. a summary shortness of breath chest tightness, positive Dse  .
RCA No flow limiting changes
LM no changes
Lad small irregularities up 20%- 30% stenosis in midsegment
LCx no significant changes
proposed treatment increased my beta blocker Bisoprolol to 5mg and said I could keep my GTN spray as it helped. The Cardiologist was concerned because have problems with my blood pressure going from normal to last high reading 185/101 pulse 104 they had believed this to be white coat syndrome. They have said I must keep taking my Beta blocker as my blood pressure symptoms are dangerous  
treat for Gerd if symptoms persist recommend GP send me for Endoscopy how confusing is this.
